A TALE OF PASSION

Jashim Salam’s Documentation Has Been Published In Various National And International Newspapers Such As The Sunday Times Magazine, Ny Times, New Internationalist, The Guardian, Reader’s Digest, Cnn, National Geographic, Reuters, Ap And Many More.

From being an English Major to a documentary photographer, Jashim Salam fought against all odds and became one of the most influential documentary photographers in Bangladesh. By winning awards such as the Emirates Photography award, the Ian Parry scholarship Fotovisura grant, the IPA Street Photography Award, the Asian Press Photo contest and the People and Planet award in Australia, he has definitely set the bar high for many.

Living in Chittagong, Jashim teaches photography in workshops and seminars for aspiring young photographers. He is also a regular on the jury boards of numerous photography contests in Bangladesh.

From a very early age Jashim has had a soft corner towards the arts. “I was always fascinated by the camera. I remember I used to volunteer when it came to taking pictures of my family, but I never knew that the camera would soon become my best friend,” says Jashim. After completing his MA in English, he got into the Photography Art Institute in Chittagong for a basic course in photography and soon was admitted into the Pathshala South Asian Media Academy for a diploma.

Taking up photography was not a walk in the park for Jashim. “When I told my family I wanted to take photography as my profession, they did not react well,” he says. “But after winning the 69th International Ashahi Shimbun award, their attitude changed and I was accepted as a photographer.”

Jashim Salam prefers to work in documentary. “I think this genre is the best way to keep in touch with people and capturing their moments,” says the photographer. His documentation has been published in various national and international newspapers such as The Sunday Times Magazine, NY Times, New Internationalist, The Guardian, Reader’s Digest, CNN, National Geographic, Reuters, AP and many more.

His work is inspired by many prominent photographers including Nasir Ali Mamun, Rashid Talukder, James Nachtwey, Raghu Rai, Joseph Kudelka and others. Right now he is working on a personal called ‘Water World’ which addresses the affects of climate change, tidal floods in urban settings, especially in Chittagong.

Âme

12345678

Âme a French word that means soul is a very personal ongoing project where I am trying to find my soul and where it belongs. In between people, friends, places and objects that matters to me. It is difficult to express what souls exactly try to find in lifetime or even after death. Does soul live forever? If so where it belongs? Does it keep coming back to those things that matter?
The small things, places, a simple voice or music, some faces, even quiet moment are very precious for me. The everyday life, smell, transport, backyard or in monsoon rain my venture will continue with the soul.

The aesthetics used here using double exposure in film for kind of eerie feeling as soul searching. The result of each image is as it is comes out straight from the camera.

It’s been said that good things are transitory. Those good little things are so special and precious that even on your unprecedented painful agony it can sooths you more than anything in the world. Good things of life can’t be purchased or can’t be achieved with plan and effort. It gonna happen when it need to happen. Those precious things and moments surrounded by lots of problem and those problems come from nowhere. Like every rose has it’s throne, every precious things folded with danger and problem. But if one really adore rose, it doesn’t matter how many thrones shades blood.

I’ve been in another visual diary right in -front of our home during this winter.

Seems like the wonderful winter sun waits for me everyday to observe life around little ally with bursting rays. Now the winter is gone so does the sunshine where it was waiting for me. No matter how much I try, now it’s not coming back in the same place for me.

The life moves on around the ally and I am stranded in the same place without that precious little sunshine.

Hard to wait for another season to my sunshine back at same place as the ever changing urban landscape with so many problems might not allow it to burst in same place. But I’ll wait and see that’s for sure.

beach days out

naturally scenic and surrounded by hills,river and sea chittagong is one of the fastest growing city in the world.Levelled as port city,chittagong, with the burden of its ever-growing population, lacks not only crucial utility services but also recreation sites such as, natural parks and playgrounds, which are considered beneficial to the physical and mental health and quality of life. However, pressure of mass migration coupled with the decades of unplanned urbanization has made the city totally a space-starved city. Both landlords and developers spare no space on their land for a garden or a playground.Patenga sea beach remains one of the most top rated spot for people to hang out and recreation with less facilities.2
