Ever since he was a child growing up in Chittagong, Bangladesh, Muhammad Amdad Hossain has been fascinated by photography. Lacking access to a proper camera, he started out taking pictures with his mobile phone, but soon realised he needed to upgrade.

‘Travel and documentary photography are the areas of his interest and his have a fascination for portrait photography,’ he says. ‘Travel and photography go hand in hand and I have been travelling near and far to depict interesting human stories for the last few years. His passion is to explore the different aspects of human life and document them.’

Now 24 years old and just completed political science course at Chittagong College under National University of Bangladesh, his work has gone from strength to strength, winning more than 100 awards and being featured in magazines and newspapers around the world. For Amdad, it’s important to capture both the beauty he sees before him and the many socio-economic problems he encounters in his home country. It’s something he views as a responsibility, not just an interest.

‘As a documentary photographer, it is my responsibility to showcase the socio-economic issues, as well as the impact on human life,’ he says. ‘I strongly believe in the power of photography in changing people’s perspective towards social changes and issues.’ But, he’s keen to emphasise that hope often shines through. ‘My photographic journey is not only to capture the social, political and financial issues and conflicts, but also to portray the artistic beauty and enduring power of the human spirit.’
