Of River and Lost Lands
Sarker Protick, Bangladesh
The relationship between man and river; intimate and ruthless. For generations people live by it. We find dependency and destruction at the same time. It’s a contradictory affair. The river gives so much to its people and at times it takes away everything.
Sarker Protick came to photography when one day during his graduate studies at University, he decided to take a picture of the sun with a camera phone. The bright sun immediately crashed his phone, the light proving too intense for his camera, but it did ignite his desire to make pictures.
