I have so far shot several hundred portraits aiming for the exhibition. I expect to hold both online and offline gallery exhibition.

The plan is to exhibit 1000 portraits of wonderful human beings I know or come across – in Bangladesh and abroad. Each photograph will accompany a short introduction of the person and a short story that we together decide to tell. I intend to invite all those 1000 people to participate and celebrate the event in Dhaka. I expect to hold both online and offline gallery exhibition.
