Chobi Mela VII Capturing the Fragile
The Chobi Mela is the first festival of photography in Asia and perhaps one of the most successful ventures initiated by Drik, a multimedia organisation based in Bangladesh. The first Chobi Mela was held in 1999 and since then has been hosted in Dhaka every two years. It is possibly the most demographically inclusive photo festival in the world and this year it is hosting artistes representing more than 24 countries including Norway, Italy, Iran, Poland, China, Egypt, Bosnia, Japan, Bangladesh and many more. This year's festival, themed Fragility, is expected to surpass the success of all previous events.
