I arrived in Dhaka earlier this week and have spent some time on the streets with my dear friend and brother GMB Akash. Akash is has been a close friend of mine for many years now and he is a master photojournalist and more importantly, a really good person. He has just finished his new photojournalism book called Survivors which documents the lives and struggles of people who are surviving against all odds. If you purchase his book you will not only own a wonderful collection of art, you will also be helping the people you see within its pages. Akash is one of those people who really changes people's lives and the money that comes in from book sales goes towards starting small businesses for those he photographs. Unlike a micro-loan, Akash is buying these businesses outright and giving them to these people who are in need yet have the drive and dreams to make lives for themselves. He is having a very high success rate with this project and changing many lives, so please consider helping by purchasing this wonderful book. I have my own copy and it is really a beautiful book. You can find out more about Survivors by GMB Akash by clicking the link.
If you would like to follow GMB Akash's Blog you can use this link. I urge you all to find out more about his projects and follow him closely, as he will go down as one of the all time great photographers.
Here are just a few of the incredible images you can find in Survivors:
All of the above images were taken by and copywritten to GMB Akash. They are all part of the book Survivors and you can find descriptions of each image within the book. If you would like to buy, publish or license any of these images please contact GMB Akash.
