My city through my phone, photo essay by Shaeekh Shuvro

Every picture submitted here is captured at Dhaka. I’ve been trying to capture interesting moments for more than a year using my fujifilm bridge camera.

Like every other sector technology of camera has improved a lot .We’ve camera in our phone too. But because of so much development we’ve started to believe that only DSLR can capture better photographs. The truth is except some particular matters it depends only on the photographer. Yes, device matters in some technical issues. But a better camera won’t give us better photographs unless we have better eyes.

Then I decided to make a series of mobile photographs only to prove this ‘better camera’ concept wrong. I started with Nokia asha 308 which is considered absolutely a foul mobile for capturing photos. Thus this ongoing project came out.

Since I am an amateur photographer, I guess I haven’t been able to take this to an excellent level yet. But I hope this will make amateur people like me believe that imagination is the key to flourish. (Shaeekh Shuvro)
