The images of the surrounding things  are transmitted to senses, and the senses transmit them to the organ of perception, and the organ of perception transmits them to the “Sensus Communies” and by it they are imprinted on the memory, and are retained there more or less distinctly according to the importance or power of the thing given . . .

During my photographic graduation degree studies since June 2000 to July 2003 at PATHSHALA, South Asian Media Academy in Bangladesh, I used a homemade scrap book like a diary where I written my thought, sketch, Images, notes etc.

One of my teacher Kirsten Clair ( British ) several time told us maintain diary but I am not too serious about it here I am remember  my another teacher Shahidul Alam ( Bangladeshi) said studies never ended, it should continue until your death. Several time several countries master  photographer’s / photojournalist’s came to Pathshalala and they conduct a workshop, sharing their works and thought, during our workshop  we the students of Pathshala  learned  more things like technique, aesthetic, presentation, some time we debate our thought with our guest lecture it is rally the good time where we spent, finally we know the importance of visual language and applied our leaving  lives.

Here I share one thought, HOW  TO LEARN THE VISUAL LANGUAGE  it is more important rather than your traditional studies. According to the note books of Leonardo da vince art study, as a visual artist must learn how the eye functions, how the shapes, size and recession of object that are put in its way can be co-ordinate. The play of light on their surfaces; he must also study their structure and life . . .

“As I’m standing on this shore,
Can you see I need more?
My hearts wish is just to know
what it’s like in the ever glow. . .”
