What does it take to be deemed beautiful? Is it the never-ending list of stereotypically perfect natural features, or the rigorous effort to hide under thick layers of powder and paint? Does the trick really lie in society’s perspective? Is this insensitive viewpoint of people on how you have been created by God worth questioning your self-value? Happiness does not linger in society’s acceptance of your appearance. At the end of the day, it is the light that lies underneath the skin that defines a person and nurtures those around them throughout a lifetime.

I am Farida Alam. Professionally I come from a business background but Photography is my passion. Exploring people and their different cultures is the area of my interest. My inspiration for photography comes from the people and my surroundings. I love to meet people from different communities and experience other cultures. I have completed basic and foundation courses on Photography from “Pathshala South Asian Media Institute" and later on completed my Diploma from Alliance Française de Dhaka. I have participated in workshops conducted by Abir Abdullah, Saiful Huq Omi, and GMB Akash.
