The streets of Dhaka have always been a great interest of mine, especially the streets in Old Dhaka. These streets have such character and an aura about them which I find very fascinating. The thing about streets at night is sometimes even the most ordinary scene can look very dramatic and mysterious just by different lighting settings and shadows.
Especially I love how the lights from the streets, shops make colors pop. And that’s what I tried to do with this series. I wanted to present those everyday scenes that we often overlook in a more painterly and dramatic way.
