Farid Shah’s abstract photography show underway at AFD

A two-week solo abstract photography exhibition titled ‘Surface’ by Farid Shah is underway at the Galerie Zoom of Alliance Française de Dhaka in Dhanmondi of the capital.

 

The inaugural ceremony of this exhibition was held on Friday evening on the gallery premises.

As Encyclopedia Britannica puts it, surface is the ‘outermost layer of a material or substance.’ Everything we have around us have surfaces — so much so it is appropriate to say that surfaces are anywhere and everywhere.

Through the camera, Farid Shah looks at these surfaces surrounding us and tries to discover an angle that may give way to a view that is new or interesting or refreshing. Sometimes he explores digital effects that may strengthen the aesthetics of these surfaces or amplify the subliminal message embedded in them.

This is a rather modern form of photography that has not yet been exposed to a greater extent in this country. Sometimes Farid Shah’s photographs may seem abstract in nature, but, under that surface, within the façade, an abounding beauty lies pleasantly.

Farid Shah was born in Dhaka in 1966 and has been doing photography for the last forty years.

The exhibition remains open to all until December 15 and can be visited according to the following schedule: Monday to Thursday from 3pm to 9pm, Friday and Saturday (9am to 12pm and 5pm to 8pm); closed on Sunday.

AFD: 26 Mirpur Road, Dhanmondi
