Syeda Ashfah Toaha Duti
People have their own way of expressing thy selves. Some choose words to portray their thoughts. Others prefer tunes and what not. Some prefer capturing it when they realise that their dreams are coming to reality. ‘Capturing moments’ requires magic. Camera is a mere device. It’s the photographer who makes the photos speak for itself. At least, they strongly believe in the idea.
The tale started its journey with that ‘Mere device’ and loads of enthusiasm. Let’s have a look at the magicians.
Iftakhar Rakin
A regular Dhaka dweller started off by capturing thevibrancy of t streets of Dhaka. Apart from being the master of mad photography skills, reading books and listening to music, he loves to travel. This young heart has already explored and discovered half of thy country, which reflects through his photos.
Avipsu Arko
A very casual member of the city of Dhaka who has been capturing magic in his reels. He has attended several workshops conducted by renowned photographers of this era. Those workshops boosted his confidence level and helped him discover the areas of photography he still needed to work on. He has been recognized for his tremendous performance at many photography competitions. He loves roaming around and treasure the yet never seen part of Dhaka city.
 Avipsu and Rakin have been friends since childhood. They often hang out for photo walks together. From Udayan High School to Jahangirnagar University, they've been together since ages.

Shams Asif
A first sight might give you the idea of him being a person who is completely unaware of his worldly existence who loves cats. But two or three of his photos are enough to prove you wrong. Currently he is studying at University of Dhaka. He’s planning on traveling and captures more of the amazing photos he’ll discover.
