I left Bangladesh in 2004 for the UK with a solid foundation in Fine Art and continued my interests with a Masters Degree in Design For Communication from the University Of Westminster in London.

I am a part of Ink, a collective of six photographers brought together through Redeye Lightbox during the pandemic located across the UK striving towards sustainable and accessible working practices. Ink aims to unfold visual stories from its members’ diverse perspectives. I am one 1 of 15 Artist Associates with New Midland Group, a Member of Primary gallery Nottingham and Whitechapel gallery London.
