Sayed Asif Mahmud

MY CITY OF UNHEARD PRAYERS (Bangladesh, 2011)

The young photographer Sayed Asif Mahmud knows first-hand what it means to work in the exponentially expanding third-world metropolis of Dhaka. Coming from the city's relatively quiet outskirts, he was confronted with the individualism and pursuit of success that characterises hyper-dynamic urban life. Hesitant about joining in the race, he was overcome by feelings of loneliness and despair. But slowly the city began to change him. It is this continuing process of perception and experience that he seeks to pour into images.
