A weeklong group photography exhibition titled ‘Flash on Rohingya Genocide’ has begun yesterday at the National Art Plaza of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) in Segun Bagicha of the capital. Organised jointly by Bhorer Kagaj, Bangladesh Pragatishil Columnist Forum and BSA, the exhibition features 57 photographs--which were captured from 2012 onwards--by photographers KM Asad, Mohammad Hossain Opu, Sumon Paul and Salauddin Ahmed and 120 other Rohingya-related  photographs captured at different times.
Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen attended the inaugural ceremony of the exhibition as chief guest at the gallery premises yesterday.
“Myanmar is not our enemy. We always want to keep a good relation with our neighbouring countries. We are cordially trying to send back the Rohingya refugees to Myanmar. Each photo of the exhibition contains hundreds of stories. Alongside the photography, I request our filmmakers to produce films on Rahingya crisis”, the foreign minister said in his speech.
Presided over by BSA Director General Liaquat Ali Lucky, vice-chancellor of Jagannath University Mijanur Rahman was present as special guest at the ceremony.
The exhibition is open to all every day from 11am to 8pm (3pm to 8pm on Friday) until January 8.
