I like to state that the plight of Ruhingya refugees who was forced to leave their own country by Myanmar’s Military janta always moves our human conscience. We can hardly imagine that how sub-human conditions they have been leading in the camps for years. As a photographer, I also could not escape from the scene and the life of the refugees in a camp got snapped in my camera. It was Kutupalang camp in Teknaf of Cox’s Bazar district, Bangladesh where around 30,000 refugees are living. I always believe democracy is the only solution to meet the problem. I also believe photography can play an instrumental role to make the people aware of such consequence of autocracy, and thus we could have a yet stronger voice for democracy in the society.

We recent saw popular uprisings in Middle-Eastern countries against autocratic rulers where photographs definitely played a very important role. We also have seen recent development in Myanmar towards democracy by holding a general election and freeing the democratic leader Aung San Suu Kyi from house arrest.

I, therefore, like to publish an album compiling all photographs which I took in Kutupalang camp so that the conscious people can have a look on the life of refugees and play their part or raise their voice in solving this human crisis. I can only be able to materialize my desire if it is sponsored. I, therefore, request you to consider my work and work experience for your kind full sponsorship/ partial sponsorship which might require US $ . 10,000 (Ten thousand US $) only to produce a quality album titled “Search for Home”.

Anyone like to publish it?
