Recently I receive good news for all of our Bangladeshi nationality. Our legendary and master photographers of Bangladesh Rashid Talukder have won the 2010 Pioneer Photographer Award in the All Roads Photography program.

The All Roads Film Project is a National Geographic program dedicated to providing a platform for indigenous and underrepresented minority-culture storytellers from around the world to showcase their works to promote knowledge, dialogue, and understanding with a broader, global audience.

Drik Picture Library is to announce their press release and also announce that this is the first time a Bangladeshi photographer wins this world-renowned award.

Among his remarkable works are the images documenting Bangladesh’s war of independence in 1971. For several decades, he has documented various aspects of Bangladeshi life with his camera, and his images will remain as an important visual archive of the events and happenings in both pre and post war Bangladesh.
