This here is "Amina", the 'pro-modern' Damsel in Distress. She was a little camera shy, must've been all those years of living in self denial, constantly being reminded that she was born a 'Girl',and in a patriarchal community she is no better than a 2nd class citizen. Amina earns 1.5 ~ 6 taka (0.085 USD) each day, working as a 'firewood bearer' who goes to and fro along the banks of the "Kaptai Lake" over a distance stretching one and a half mile, countless times, everyday. Despite all the difficulties growing up, 'Amina' retains a strange, stark beauty. A farcical gaze that tears through your very soul. A look that screams of hardship, gender discrimination,the failures of institutions like "UNICEF" & of a fake prerogative that calls itself "Nari Odhikar Aine"(Law of Women Rights).
Hi, I'm Naser I Hossain. My friends (and foes alike) call me 'Atunu'. I'm currently studying Mechanical Engineering in Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET). I love to blog, listen to jazz, blues, classic rock, design websites, watch noir comedies and offcourse 'Take Photographs'...loads and loads of them'. Bokehs, macros and street photography create my kinda vibe. I'm also into b&w portraiture, if the subject fits my motif that is :D
I'm strictly a Nikonian by birth. I love my Nikons like I love my music, soothing to use and grasp.

... as long as there's an advanced Maths course in a (not necessarily) nearby country. He's known for pushing friends into the most expensive photographic equipment... several family inheritances have been wasted, but they often acknowledge his smart advices. Owner of a clinical eye, he can spot perfection amidst chaos as easily as a small imperfection on a perfect photo. He's also an occasional stork stalker and, above all, a caring father of two beautiful children. Gastão's current location: Covilhã, Portugal.
... give us a hand. He's our Computer Science genius and is currently addicted to photographing cats. He's a natural born optimist who makes a joke out of anything... don't mess with his Toyota though. Eventually, his stocks will rise from death and he'll invest in livestock and vineyards. He's got highly trained fingers either playing the piano or shortcutting photoshop. We hope he'll stick around after marrying his college sweetheart. In the mean time, he'll dissect every submitted photograph into binary code. Pedro's current location: Covilhã, Portugal.
... would only be true if reading travel, geographic and surfing books/magazines accounted some mileage. He checks his e-mail every 2 minutes and he's often seen going cold-turkey when offline. Still divided between several walks of life, he strongly believes in Murphy's law "If anything can go wrong, it will". Photography plays a huge role in his life, at least judging by his conversation topics. Gray hair will eventually take the better of him. Pedro's current location: Covilhã, Portugal.
