We grew up on the remote side of Bangladesh where the only communication and transport was rail or river. Going to river is always my craving, but I couldn’t realize her mightiness, beauty and struggle.
Life of rivers is as humans’ nature. Her strengths of love give nature a gorgeous look and also destructive manners.
My journey with photography agitated my life so many ways that create passion floating on many rivers mile after miles.
My River journey begins early during 1999, floating with a boat on Padma river near Shoriotpor District.
In the year 2000 the month of February I had planned to discover the life of the river which was not a very easy journey. As my plan, I had decided to walk by the river Padma which is flowing from India and my target was to reach “Farakka” barrage, and my first-day walk was so raw that it taught me remarkable journey by feet.
The day I start our walk from six in the morning till eight in the evening it was a destructive plan which I never thought of.
After developing my B&W films a week later that destructive day walk didn’t sadden me at all.
This is one of my Favorite Images along with many more.
