Weeklong photography show on social outcasts begins today

A weeklong photography exhibition on social outcasts, marginal and excluded people of Bangladesh titled ‘Brattyajan’ (The Lower Depths) by Philip Gain will begin today in the capital’s Drik gallery.

The inaugural ceremony of the exhibition will be held today, where eminent economist Professor Wahiduddin Mahmud will be present as chief guest. The guests of honour and distinguished speakers at the event are Professor Rahnuma Ahmed, Masihuddin Saker, Professor Adnan Zillur Morshed, Dr Harishankar Jaladas, Chitta Ghosh and Saud Khan. Dr Hossain Zillur Rahman will chair the inaugural session of the exhibition.

The exhibition will bring to light ethnic and tea communities, Bede, sex workers, Kaiputra, Rishi, Harijan, Jaladas and Bihari. These communities constitute a significant part of social outcasts and excluded people of Bangladesh. They have difficulties in treading the same path of development as equal citizens of Bangladesh. One visiting the exhibition will see images showing objective realities of life and struggle of people who remain invisible to great extent and who deserve citizen and state attention.

Four organisations—Society for Environment and Human Development (SEHD), Power and Participation Research Centre (PPRC), Christian Commission for Development in Bangladesh (CCDB) and Gram Bikash Kendra (GBK), with support from the European Union and ICCO Cooperation—have been implementing a multi-year initiative to address the challenges the marginal and excluded communities of Bangladesh face. In connection with this initiative, these four organizations have organised the photography exhibition.

The exhibition will remain open to all every day from 3pm to 8pm, until June 25.

Where: Drik Gallery, House 58, Road 15A (New), Dhanmondi R/A

When: Inauguration: 3pm, today
