Online photography exhibition at the EMK Center: New Normal Through My Eyes

To celebrate this World Photography Day 2021, KrayonMag and the Liberal Arts University of Bangladesh have collaborated to create an online photography exhibition at the EMK Center to tell the story of the new normal of this corona pandemic named “The New normality through my eyes”.

The exhibition kicked off on September 1 and will run until September 14, with the participation of photography clubs from several universities across the country, a press release said.

The young storytellers captured the synopsis of life in lockdown in a very creative way. With nowhere to go and very little to do during this lockdown, everyone was locked up in their homes. All 60 photographs exhibited in this exhibition show us the essence of the new normal during this lockdown and home quarantines in our life and environment.

Dolon Champa Dutta, project supervisor of KrayonMag, says: “The images tell people’s stories. The images of today are the documents of the future world. We want to save these corona days through the lens of the camera of our students. That’s why we organize this exhibition.”

Professor Dr. Jude Willium Genilo, head of the MSJ department at ULAB quotes: “We celebrate photography as an art, as a science. Photography day is celebrated so that we can encourage more people, more students to take up photography as a hobby or as their career. Years later, when we forget this current situation, the only images will be our memories.”

During a strict lockdown, Noor Muhammad Khan Mahi was spending time on his balcony on a gloomy day as an idea occurred to him to capture the lives of people in cages in a photo. About his photo, he remarked, “Many photos were taken to get that perfect shot, but each time something was missing. Something that completes the picture. Then suddenly I saw birds flying and without hesitation I started taking pictures. element that was missing before, was something that represented what people were looking for the most at the time; their desired freedom. So basically the concept of the “Caged” photo is the table turned this time around. Now we humans are locked down and bound to stay home to survive and see the birds flying freely in the sky.”
