" Faces of the unknown ( Colour ) "

We live in a world of 7 billion and we all have faces , the faces of our own and There is a story behind every face , a sadness beneath every smile , hope behind every emotion and I always try my best to find these hidden stories, sadness and emotions behind every face i capture , not just with my camera , with my heart as well . Everywhere i go i see faces , the faces that i have never seen before are probably the faces i will never forget .  Their faces tells me something , i see something through their eyes and i don't have words to describe that feeling . 

When i see my face in the mirror , i see different faces of the same person and that person is me . It may sound funny but i actually can't remember my own face . I carry many faces with me . The people i  photographed  , the people i have only seen once . I try find my self in these faces because i am lost , lost in the pain deep down me . I am really close to the children's faces . Sometimes you can see the world in a child's eye . They have the ability to smile while in the darkest moment of their lives and i believe we can't keep our tears away in the happiest moments of our lives .  " Life is not a math that can be solved by theories " Its a short time , we should be happy with what we have and work hard for what we want . These children's can teach us how to be happy with a little .

A young boy i found beside a local car store .

What are you doing here ? 

- I am working 

Do you go to school ? 

- No 

Do you want to go there ? 

- Yes

He was playing in the field , he saw me with my camera and posed for a photograph .

They were playing a game of their own , i don't what they call that game . 

He says " I rock "  

"That's how big your heart is "

They were sitting beside a traditional " mejhban " gate , waiting for some food .

For you , for them

Some kids having their long awaited " Mejhban food '. Tradition is not only for the rich or poor , its about sharing your happiness and sorrow with everyone .

My precious

Found these three little ladies in a village called " Ghobindor Khill "here in chittagong , just beside my grand father's Mansion . I photographed all of them . One thing i noticed about them is they never stop smiling ., A priceless , everlasting smile. Hope we will meet again . I never forget them even if we don't 

The brightest smile 

The face i never seen before is probably the face i will never forget

I will remember you 

I met her twice . First day she ran away from me . The next day she came to me and asked to take a photo of her . Maybe she will forget my camera and me but i will always remember her .


There is something in her smile , Something mysterious .

Don't just smile , Laugh and don't just laugh , laugh out loud !  

Thanks for the smile dear !

Can I take your Photo ? 


What's your name ? 

I wont tell but you can take my photo 

A smile brighter than sun

Hi what's your name ?

My name is " hihihi " —

Brothers under the sun .

 They were walking around , trying to find a tree to rescue themselves from the unbearable heat , i found them on the  way and realized their innocents will never talk to you .  

Smile for the moment . 

Found this little boy beside a local slum a year ago and i have never see a smile as great as this . 

Found this guy around my house riding his cycle . 

Don't hide your face from the sunlight , let it warm your soul up !

Why don't you like me ? 

Because you are weird . 

Cycle Boys 

Another biker who lives around my house , he saw me with my camera and asked me for a photograph . 

Smile a little , just a little 

I had to walk to reach the 15 th floor because the elevator wasn't working . I found this little lady on my way and i  took her photograph 

My eyes , your eyes 

He wasn't allowed to play with his friends and he was sitting beside the field alone . He didn't mind my company 

2 of them 

These two young ladies goes to a school just beside the one i used to go to . I found them and i guess one of them didn't like me at all . 

In the end of the day the journey is more important than the end or the start . Life is a journey , maybe a short one or maybe a long one but we gotta make use of the little time we have in our hands . Work hard , live hard , pray as much as you can and keep smiling .

Dear Mother

 Dear Mother - Rizvee Imran 

 The times when i made mistakes . 
I never said i am sorry . 
I don't listen to your words 
I  always did  the opposite .
 I have never been the perfect child . 
Might be the worst of them all .

I never saw carefully what you did for me . 
Maybe i am blind or maybe i am a deaf . 

When i was sick
When i was sad 
When i needed help 
You were there silently 
But i wasn't in the senses to see what you have done for me 

I always complain .
I always argue . 
But i never said i am sorry 
I have never been a perfect child , i am worst of them all .  


All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.

Abraham Lincoln


I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.

Abraham Lincoln


The mother art is architecture. Without an architecture of our own we have no soul of our own civilization.

Frank Lloyd Wright


 We are born of love; Love is our mother.



The mother's heart is the child's schoolroom.

Henry Ward Beecher


A mother who is really a mother is never free.

Honore de Balzac


In search of my mother's garden, I found my own.

Alice Walker


You carry Mother Earth within you. She is not outside of you. Mother Earth is not just your environment.

Why still today mothers get humiliated at the corner of the house? On the floor of the Old Age Home? Or in the dirtiest hospital bed from negligence? - Gmb Akash


Thanks to all the mothers in the world .
