From Pariah to Citizen

 

Photos from the other side :  Images from the forgotten camps of Bangladesh: a book that explores a journey from pariah to citizen. Photos from the other side is a book waiting to be published - See how you can help below. 

Meanwhile have a look at more of Shaifur Rahman's creative world.
 
Joe Deane, Joseph Loughborough and Ben Slow paint on Hanbury Street, Brick Lane. Ben and Joe paint a piece called "Ma o Shishu" or mother and child from a photograph Shafiur Rahman found in a book about photography and its power to change in South Asia.


Their piece changed the street. Everyone who passed - young and old, local or tourist - responded very warmly to it. As did the restaurant owner who owns the wall. But there was another hidden story just behind the painting...of destitution and homelessness in London. 21st century London.

This video is part of a larger project on Brick Lane seen through art and artists. Filmed March 2010. Music by Moka Only

Now go support with a donation a book waiting to be published.
