In Bangla literature, the late afternoon light is apparently known as “kone dekhano alo” – “light to show off the bride in”. As someone who’s
a bore fascinated with the quality of light, I thought that this was so lovely that I should mention it. That, and the fact that I’m going to lead a Photojournalism workshop in Chittagong, Bangladesh hosted by the Pathshala Institute of Photography. It’s a generous invitation by the prolific Shahidul Alam of Drik Picture Agency fame.
I’m teaching twenty eight students, between the 11th and 17th of January. The participating students will be from Oslo University College, Pathshala students and local students from Chittagong.
I will be on email and My Bangladesh cell will be: 0088-01711-127463. I plan to be in the region for an extra two weeks if anyone needs anything.
