Women in Photography 2018 Exhibition
Concealed | Habiba Nowrose

As women we are often compelled to portray our beautiful selves. In that path to avail beauty we are made to strip off our individuality, stories and traumas. Eventually we lose ourselves and be one with that fabricated image. We become anonymous even to ourselves and our identities remain concealed.

About Habiba Nowrose
I am Habiba Nowrose, a photographer based in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Currently studying in Danish School of Media and Journalism as an exchange student from Pathshala South Asian Media Institute. I am particularly interested in subjects that explore the human relationship and gender identities. I am more inclined to take portraits as it allows the space for many different interpretations. Often my portraits are made after elaborate preparation. In my artistic process, I carefully take mental note of the objects, colors, patterns, and locations that attract me repeatedly. These elements play a fundamental role in my image making process. This process is psychological and interactive at the same time. I work in color and different color has a different meaning for me. Taking decisions regarding these details are part of my preparation. I thoroughly enjoy this process as I enjoy image making.
