Dépaysement Exhibition: Md Enamul Kabir

Md Enamul Kabir
Submission Title
Photographer Bio
I am Md. Enamul Kabir from Bangladesh. I grew up in a small town called Kotchandpur. It’s a small but beautiful town. Now I live and work in the capital city, Dhaka.
Never have I ever imagined that I’ll be walking around with a camera, stopping at irregular intervals, snapping photos left and right; never had any interest in photography.
At the end of 2012, I was unemployed and struggling to find a job. I’d tag with local online photography group, visiting different places, mostly to kill time. I was actually hoping someone will take a good portrait of me and I can use that on my FB profile.
Later, I met a photographer named Imtiaz Alam Beg, whose words inspired me to get behind the lens. Now, I can’t take my eye of the viewfinder, it seems.
I prefer my photos to be concise and cohesive. I try to achieve the best result possible with fewer subjects. I like to shoot animals and unnoticed moments; try to keep the questions of why and how in my photographs and also try to find different meaning in our society and personal feelings with my Canon 550D,18-55mm.
My work has exhibited in HIPA-2014,2017, Miami Street Photography Festival-2016,2017, StreetFoto San Francisco-2016, LSPF-2017, Brussels Street Photography Festival-2017, Summer in Your City-2017, Lens culture Street Photography Award, 2017, Lens culture Exposure Award, 2018, EyeEm Photography Award-2017, Sony World Photography Award 2018, Photography on a Post Card-2017, Behind the Portrait-Gulf Photo Plus, Dubai and also published interview in many magazine and blogs including 121clicks and in-public.and published in books- WSP’15, WSP3,WSP4, OMOE 15.
Submission Information
Since the beginning of civilization, animals have been an integral part of human lives. In the modern mechanized cities, people may not depend on animals for livelihood or security as much, but, in every society, new or old, people have and will continue to coexist with animals. Interaction with animals takes various forms: from medical necessity to emotional support. These are all ways to friendship. Living in close surrounding of animals teaches us humbleness, honesty and sensitivity. I can feel that I have become a better, more compassionate person by getting close to the strays in my city. One can act fake and fool a person but one has to be honest to get animals’ respect.
