Sheikh Arif Bulbon : As Encyclopaedia Britannica puts it, surface is the outermost layer of a material or substance.â€™ Everything we have around us have surfaces - so much so it is appropriate to say that surfaces are anywhere and everywhere. Through the camera, Farid Shah looks at these surfaces surrounding us and tries to discover an angle that may give way to a view that is new or interesting or refreshing. Sometimes he explores digital effects that may strengthen the aesthetics of these surfaces or amplify the subliminal message embedded in them. This is a rather modern form of photography that has not yet been exposed to a greater extent in this country. Sometimes Farid Shahâ€™s photographs may seem abstract in nature, but, under that surface, within the faÃ§ade, an abounding beauty lies pleasantly. The solo abstract photography exhibition titled â€˜Surfaceâ€™ by Farid Shah is being held at Galerie Zoom, Alliance FranÃ§aise de Dhaka in the capitalâ€™s Dhanmondi area. The inaugural ceremony of the exhibition was held last Friday. Farid Shah was born in Dhaka in 1966 and has been doing photography for last forty years. The exhibition will continue till December 15. n
