As Encyclopaedia Britannica puts it, surface is the outermost layer of a material or substance.’ Everything we have around us have surfaces - so much so it is appropriate to say that surfaces are anywhere and everywhere.

The solo abstract photography exhibition titled ‘Surface’ by Farid Shah is being held at Galerie Zoom, Alliance Française de Dhaka in the capital’s Dhanmondi area.
