Photography exhibition on Sufism at Begum Gallery

A month-long solo photography exhibition titled ‘Light from the Cosmos is underway at the Begum Restaurant and Gallery in the capital.

The solo exhibition by photographer and filmmaker Imran Firdaus is curated by renowned artist Ronni Ahmmed.

Famed musician Sheikh Monirul Alam Tipu inaugurated the exhibition on June 22 and will remain open for all from 11 am to 8:30 pm every day until July 22.

The exhibition is a tribute to the famous folk singer Sufi Baul Khalek Dewan, who died in 2003. Every year on his birthday, his fans and disciples gather at the residence of the mystic poet for Urosh and the show is dedicated to Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti Hasan.

The photos displayed at the exhibition were taken during the congregation of Sufis on the occasion of Khalek Dewan’s 90th birth anniversary in 2016.

On the other hand, “Imran Firdaus is a visionary photographer, filmmaker, writer, and cultural activist. A bohemian soul wandering like wind and fire, as his earthly existence drives him from a cosmic plan. In our cultural field, he is a silent and selfless contributor, and had a true heart to explore the secret gems around the country.”

Imran has been working on Sufism for the last few years.
