Earlier this year Ryan Ammon travelled to Bangladesh to study International Photojournalism and Documentary Photography through a collaboration between Edith Cowan University and Dhaka’s Pathshala: South Asian Media Academy. Whilst in Bangladesh he built up a large body of work that captured stories, events and the essence of another world that is showcased in this exhibition.
“Images from Bangladesh” includes both printed images and screened multimedia. The exhibition will feature Ryan's major project, “Zero Point – The Stone Workers of Jaflong”. This story captures the environmental impacts to a popular tourist destination caused by industrial capitalisation in the area. The images and documentary give a voice to the workers and provide an insight into manual labour in Bangladesh. The second part of the exhibition features additional images from the exploration of Bangladesh, revealing a different and intriguing world - from the streets and rooftops in Dhaka to the rice fields and brick making plants in the more rural Sylhet.
