Personal Best:  Moin Uddin Ahmed

I was born in Narayanganj District of Bangladesh in 1977. I grew up in a middle-class family in Dhaka City. 

Being a member of a middle-class family, I have received different expressions of joy and sorrows of life. Different moments of my surroundings triggered my passion. I love to capture and collect these random yet defining moments of humanity and everyday life. Street Photography is all about capturing every day, yet ephemeral, moments that happen around us all the time. I prefer to shoot a breadth of street subjects using a variety of angles, in both color and black and white. I’m trying to arrangements that juxtaposed elements that result in intriguing visions of society and even marks of mystery.

I’ve been working as an ICT professional for the last 18 years. But apart from my profession I’m very much passionate and obsessed with photography and started an apprenticeship with Pathshala South Asian Media Institute.
