2nd solo exhibition of Shibly Shiraj underway at AFD

The 2nd solo photography exhibition titled ‘France, Natural and Eternal: A Photographer’s Journey’ by Shibly Shiraj is underway at La Galerie of Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD).

The inauguration ceremony of the exhibition was held on the premises on AFD on July 26. International Theatre Institute (ITI)’s Honorary President Ramendu Majumder attended the opening ceremony as the chief guest.

About the Exhibition: In March 2019 Shibly Shiraj took a three week-long journey in France. He rented a car and drove on the highways and the country roads. Travelling around France, from the north coast to the south and from the sea to the mountains, he took pictures of vast natures capes, and of tiny stones in a running stream — the village home of Édouard Manet enchanted Shiraj and he tried looking at it from the perspective of the nature that surrounds it. Shiraj believes that the nature must remain at the core of human’s existence. The exhibition resolutely follows this pathos.

The exhibition will be open to all till August 8 at La Galerie, Alliance Française de Dhaka. Visiting Hours:  Monday to Thursday from 3:00pm to 9:00pm, Friday and Saturday (9:00am to12:00 noon and 5:00pm to 8:00pm). Closed on Sunday.
