Shahidul Alam, eminent photographer and activist, has received Infinity Award-2019 in New York city on Tuesday.

Shahidul has been awarded with the special presentation award from non-juried awards category at the 35th annual gala organized by International Center of Photography (ICP) at the Ziegfeld Ballroom.

As a photojournalist, he has been recognized by ICP for his insight into political turmoil, refugee crises, and much more, bringing visibility to critical social justice issues.

ICP, an institution dedicated to photography and visual culture, was founded in 1974 to preserve the legacy of “concerned photography”—the creation of socially and politically minded images that have the potential to educate and change the world.

Time magazine’s 2018 Person of the Year, photographer, writer and human rights activist, Shahidul Alam obtained a PhD in chemistry from London University before taking up photography.

Shahidul, also the founder of Drik and Pathshala South Asian Media Institute, has been awarded the Lucie Awards and the Photo Kathmandu Award of Excellence 2018 for his outstanding contributions in the field of photography and journalism.
