Nasir Ali Mamun’s photography show begins at AFD

The fifty-eight solo photography exhibition by Nasir Ali Mamun titled ‘SM Sultan-The Cosmic Journey of a Fugitive’ is underway at the La Galerie of Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD) in Dhanmondi of the capital.

At the inaugural ceremony, a photography book with the same title by Nasir Ali Mamun was also launched.

Cultural Affairs Minister Asaduzzaman Noor attended the inauguration event as the chief guest, while Ambassador of France to Bangladesh Marie Annick Bourdin, Ambassador of Italy to Bangladesh Mario Plama eminent artist Monirul Islam and architect and artist Mustapha Khalid Palash were present as special guests. Besides, Professor Moinuddin Khaled and the new director of Alliance Française de Dhaka Olivier Dintinger also attended the event.

Over the span of a decade, Nasir Ali Mamun recorded the one-man journey of the ‘fugitive’ and bohemian painter SM Sultan — his pathos, darkness and struggle as he went about recreating on giant canvasses the essence of human spirit.

Mamun’s camera chronicled Sultan’s closeness to the common people and how he spoke for the people who had toiled through the ages for the advancement of human civilisation. A recluse in love with nature, Sultan’s canvasses as well as surroundings inhered animals, birds and plants that he greatly cared for.

The photography book ‘SM Sultan-The Cosmic Journey of a Fugitive’ is sponsored by Delvistaa Foundation.

The exhibition is open to all October 5 and can be visited according to the following schedule: Monday to Thursday from 3 pm to 9 pm, Friday and Saturday (9 am to 12 noon and 5 pm to 8 pm); closed on Sunday.

AFD: 26 Mirpur Road, Dhanmondi
