I am Turjoy Chowdhury, a practicing freelance documentary photographer and photojournalist based in Dhaka, Bangladesh. From the childhood I am connected with various cultural activities such as reciting, drawing, music, theater, TV performance etc and also achieved several National, Asian-Pacific and International awards. I was Junior Ambassador (2002) and Peace Ambassador (2008) of Asian-Pacific Children Convention (APCC) organized by BRIDGE Club International Organization (BCIO-Japan).

I am seriously in the field of photography since 2011. Documentary Photography attracts me most because this is an art of telling stories. Through photography I search for different aspects and meaning of life. I believe Documentary Photography has the power to express a lot of things rather than words and it helps me to get lost in the people and life and I want to practice photojournalism/Documentary photography not only as a profession, but as a social service as well. Though it’s not possible to change a whole society through photography alone, at least I want to make some contribution to it with my photography.

I am available for assignments.

    THANK YOU FOR YOUR JOB. I think it is very important to show the rest of the world these terrible situation millions peoples live every day, like their normal life: Like wake up early from Monday to Friday, go to the school every morning and have lunch at 13.30.
    I believe like you “the photos” are a good way to make a contribution to report what is happening, better than the words. Thank you for done that difficult job.

    I have just seen “Life in waste”,it’s very humbling. The little boy sharing the banana and washing the dropped piece will stay with me for a long time. We are certainly not a civilised society.
    I read that I can make a donation through contacting you here. Please can you email me with details.
    Thank you for drawing attention to this terrible situation, but also in showing the dignity and humanity amongst people who have so little.
