A pilot from Bangladesh, Shamim Sharif Susom is a photography enthusiast. For him, photography is a passion and that is clearly evident in his breathtaking pictures that he shares with the public.
Shamim grew up in a small village somewhere in Bangladesh before moving to the bustling Dhaka. After he finished his studies, he managed to secure a job but the job required him to move from one place to another place frequently.
Due to his nature of work, he did not have the chance to stay at one place for a long time. Thus, the only place he felt attached to was his village where he grew up.

Since he fell in love with photography at a tender age, he began to snap shots of his beloved country as a way of expressing his gratitude and appreciation towards the beautiful landscape of Bangladesh
“The way I see it, I am fortunate enough to fly, and fortunate enough to see my root, my village, my urban life from a different perspective”
“At the end of the day, I’m capturing the memoirs of my reconnection. I am revisiting my country, my past, my childhood”
