Announcement – Bangladeshi Photographers exhibited on The Black Snapper.

Diederik Meijer of The Black Snapper told me about this wonderful online photography exhibition of the works of young Bangladeshi photographers at their photography website.  This entire week is dedicated to Bangladeshi photographers and their photography.

Photography has come a long way in Bangladesh and there are many home-grown talents who are exploring the world through their own viewfinders. Whereas before photography was deemed as more of a hobby, these days many young photographers are taking it on as a full-time career. Now we have Bangladeshi photographers winning international awards and working on international assignments. Indeed, the future is wide open for the photographers of Bangladesh!
Come and experience Bangladesh through the photographers’ perspectives at The Black Snapper!

About The Black Snapper:    The Black Snapper presents young photography talent from all over the world. The magazine has gone live on August 1st 2009 and is working with guest curators such as Abbas of Magnum Photos, Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts in Japan, International Photo Festival Bangladesh, Centro de la Imagen in Peru and The New York Times Magazine.

Each day The Black Snapper presents a different photographer selected by one of the many guest curators, who switch places on a weekly basis. Visitors of the online magazine can expect to see a new series of some eight to twenty photos each day. The Black Snapper aims to create an online community that will inspire professionals and photography lovers worldwide and expose new talent. In addition, the online magazine emphatically supports the emancipation and promotion of photographers from Asia, Africa and South America. 

The Black Snapper is the brainchild of designer Frank Kloos and documentary photographer Diederik Meijer, both based in Amsterdam. The online magazine was born from their passion for photography. The Black Snapper uses the Internet to discover and present photographic talent from all over the world in a faster and more uncomplicated way.
