I am Showrav Chowdhury, hailing from Habiganj, Bangladesh. Currently, I am pursuing my undergraduate degree while passionately pursuing photography. Growing up in a middle-class family, pursuing my passion for photography was quite challenging. My journey into the world of photography commenced in 2019 when I completed the Basic Photography Course offered by the Shahjalal University Photographers’ Association (SUPA).
However, it wasn’t until the end of 2020 that I truly grasped the profound art of photography. At that time, I used my father’s mobile phone because I did not have a camera of my own. Gradually, I found myself immersed in the captivating world of street photography. I am committed to learning and growing every day, drawing inspiration from every source, and actively sharing my knowledge with others. This continuous process has significantly contributed to my growth as a photographer.
My work has had the privilege of being exhibited in numerous national and international exhibitions. Notably, I achieved the First Runner-Up position in HIRAERH 5 – An Intra SUST Photography Exhibition and clinched victory in the Sylhet Photo Contest organized by the Sylhet Photographic Society (SPS). Additionally, I was honored with the title of ‘The Best Shot of 2021’ by FRSTHAND.
My accomplishments also include being selected as a finalist in the HIPA “NATURE” 2021-22 Season 11 General Category (Color), earning the distinction of Finalist in the Documentary Family Award in 2020, and receiving the prestigious Best Story Award in 2021 at the ‘Photography for Social Change’ event, arranged by the International Republican Institute (IRI).
