Bangladesh, standing on the edge


Munem Wasif's documentary photography looks at people at the margins of society, left by the wayside, ignored, forgotten or oppressed. His topics range from migration to climate change to urban life. In this exhibition, Munem Wasif has taken on serious issus in his native Bangladesh and exposed them to the world. These are critical subjects that dare audiences to pause and face difficult moments. The Burmese regime, near the border with Bangladesh, makes the Rohingyas suffer untold atrocities and deprives them of citizenship rights in their native country. In Bangladesh, Rohingyas refugees survive in inhumane conditions ; unwanted by the brutal Burmese junta, they are caught in a permanent no man's land. Bangladesh, wih a population of 140 million, packed into an area maller than the American state of Wisconsin, is one of the first victim of climate change. The people are at the mercy of nature, some live with the memory of losing their grip on the hand of a child washed away, by a tidal wave caused by cyclone Sidr. Once happy villagers leading a peaceful rural life, have turned into mere statistics as "climate refugees".


The exhibition consists in 42 black and white prints. Size 50x60 cm, with passe partout.
