A photo exhibition titled “Ankur”, organized by the Mangaldeep Foundation, opened on Sunday at Banani Asian Center in the capital.

The exhibition is held at the Batighar Sritite Shorone Aly Zaker Auditorium of the Asian Center and features 30 photographs by Farhana Setu.

On this occasion, a press conference was organized at the Asian Center where former Minister of Culture and cultural personality Asaduzzaman Noor, Asian General Manager Iresh Zaker, photographer Farhana Setu and others were present.

Farhana Setu said, “I overcame many challenges to create these works. I want to create awareness through them.”

Asaduzzaman Noor said, “Aly Zaker was not just busy with business or cultural activities. He was involved in many businesses. He died of cancer. He wanted to work with cancer patients. We are trying to make his wish come true. We will continue to carry out such activities under the guidance of Asiatic.”

About three lakh children are affected by blood or bone marrow cancer every year in the country, of which only 20% can recover. The exhibition was organized to increase everyone’s sympathy towards the affected children and also to raise awareness of related issues.

The photographer attempted to highlight the dreams and visions of the affected children through the exhibition. The show will continue until December 3 and is open to all from 3-8 p.m. daily.
