Old Dhaka is the most crowded and oldest part of Dhaka city, always on its toes, in a boisterous way.
Chaotically beautiful!! I found that spite, that vigor for life, that chaos in Old Dhaka; the kind of chaos that doesn’t make you feel uncomfortable but rather invites you to immerse in life whole heartedly. This is the kind of chaos I can romanticize, the one that vibes of spirits, of energy, joys and heartache and an amalgamation of varied sensory mediums.
It all started with random street photography and at a certain point I observed that a hefty number of my photographs have one place in common ‘Old Dhaka’, therefore I decided to compile-edit the images and put up a visual journey.
