“Inner Face” is a photographic series exploring the queer community of Bangladesh spanning twelve years. The intimate black & white photographs are lush in the technique that embodies the intensity and warmth.

The series contains a hundred photographs. The photographic prints are produced in museum-grade archival gelatin silver print, framed with teak wood, and protected with museum-grade anti-reflective & UV protected acrylic by the state of the art lab in Florence.


I remember as a child going to my grandmother’s house in Old Dhaka on the day of Ashura to watch the matam (mourning) procession. As the procession would pass by I would watch from the behind the widows the intense self-flagellation of the mourners with zanjeer (chain) and talwar (sword), chanting ‘Ya Hussein”. 

The photographic series was made in 2012 as I walked along the mourners through the city.
