This documentary photographic exhibition presents historical photographic overview of the Bangladesh war of independence in 1971.

The Bangladesh war of independence was one of the bloodiest conflicts in living memory. An incredible list of talented and deeply dedicated photographers from all across the globe responded to one of the greatest humanitarian crises of recent times. This included several Bangladeshi photographers; some professional, some amateur. Unlike their western counterparts, these photogr

aphers worked on their own, taking huge risks as they were themselves amongst the persecuted. Their documents are an indictment of those who caused the pain and the ones who let it happen. They are a tribute to those who fought valiantly.

Shown for the first time in Australia, this unique archival collection embodies the pride of Bangladesh’s struggle for independence, the pain of loss, the humiliation of being violated and the joy of victory.

Presented by Drik, UQ’s Centre of Communication and Social Change, School of Journalism and Communication, Griffith University’s Queensland College of Art (QCA) and Brisbane Powerhouse
