A two-day long photography exhibition titled “Life in the Frame” began at Ashwini Kumar Hall in the Barisal city center on Sunday morning, and closed its curtains on Monday.

The exhibition was organized by Barisal Photography Club (BPC), featured a total of 106 photos by 82 photographers.

Barisal Divisional Commissioner Ram Chandra Das inaugurated the programme, and Barisal Deputy Commissioner SM Ajiar Rahman was present as the special guest of the inaugural ceremony of the event. 

Discussants at the inaugural ceremony, and visitors of the exhibition, said in their speeches and comments that the photographers had tried to focus on the different and diverse types of life in Bangladesh.

Ram Chandra Das said: “The exhibition was organized to encourage the young generation toward photography, and to promote art and culture. Photography talks about existence and the  movements of life and creation, and also showcases the diversity of nature in Bangladesh.”

“A good photograph is one that communicates a fact, touches the heart and leaves the viewer a changed person after seeing it, which in a word we could express as ‘effective’,” said SM Ajiar  Rahman.

Mustasinur Rahman Alvi, president of BPC, said: “This is the 3rd edition of the exhibition ‘Life in the Frame’, and the aim of this event is to encourage young eyes, to create their interest in photography and to connect them with a platform of photographers.”

Eminent cultural activist Kajol Ghosh said: “We hope this type of photography exhibition will be arranged every year.”

Huge numbers of visitors, artists, photographers, socio-cultural activists and students visited the exhibition and appreciated the works of the photographers.
