Showcase of the Week – Aftab Uzzaman

37

My name is Aftab Uzzaman.

I am originally from Bangladesh, currently living in New Zealand.

I am a doctor by profession, not a photographer.

I fell in love with photographs when I was a little kid. It was the magic of capturing a moment that overwhelmed me. Can we relive the past vividly? It was magical.

I never thought I would take up photography seriously. I wanted to be a poet or a painter or a novelist. I wanted to understand life with its beauty and mystery and express my own feelings about these. Five or six years ago, I realized that I could do this better with photography than any other medium.

To me, finding a deeper and personal meaning in a photograph or a scene is more important than its technical aspects. I want to call it expressive photography. After all, almost anybody can shoot an awesome landscape or a cool macro. There is nothing unique or personal about it. I want to interpret the deeper meaning of that lone tree or that butterfly. I want to convey an emotion or a feeling that is my own. I want to convey life the way I understand and interpret it.

I am a composition freak, because I believe that a good and simple distraction free composition conveys a theme much better than a clumsy one.

I do almost all kinds of photographs except artificially lit ones.

I prefer natural light.

All my good and bad photographs are on flickr. They are free to download and use.

Thanks for reading about me.

  1. It’s always magical going through Aftab’s photos. However these are not his top 28 shots so far because any such categorization does not exist for his photographs. Most of them are awesome. Depending on the viewr’s mood some appears to be more mesmerizing, well, until some other one looks even more appealing.

    Congrats, you’ve always been a inspiration! wishing you the best for the future =) you are the perfect role-model mashAllah…

  3. The most amazing thing about Aftab’s photographs is they have something to satisfy the need or mood of all most every passersby. He has explored almost every aspect and area of the photography domain. Yet he continues to search for more stories and express them through his clicks.

  4. What can I say, an amazing photographer. These type of photo makes me wanna leave work and go out their and snap at anything just so I can (just might) get lucky capturing anything as amazing as these great work by Aftab ..

  5. P.S. I used one of your beautiful flickr photos for one of my blog posts. I wanted to email you to let you know but I had no way of contacting you, so I’m hoping you will see my comment here.
