Chittagong Photo Journalist Association and Radisson Blu Chittagong Bay View celebrated the first day of a week-long photography exhibition titled ‘Colour of Chittagong’ featuring works of 30 photojournalists in the city on Saturday.

The exhibition is aimed at portraying the multi-cultural heritage and natural as well as industrial diversity of the region. Through 60 photos, participating photographers are exhibiting the demographic pluralities that enable Chittagong to stand on its own.

Saifuzzaman Chowdhury, State Minister of Land Ministry was the chief guest while Dr. M Ramiz Uddin Chowdhury, Executive Editor of the Daily Purbokone inaugurated the event.

Such exhibitions play a great role in promoting tourism in Chittagong as it showcases the assets we have in this region, the State Minister exclaimed at the programme.

The photographs showcase the beauty from plain land, sea, hills, local markets, festivities, monuments, architecture and various sources to display the cultural harmony and dimly-exposed scenic beauty for what the natives can boast of.

The subject ranged from the picture of a seagull in the air of Saint Martin Island through the fruit market at the hilly area of Rangamati to Container Ships waiting to come ashore in Chittagong port.

“These photos cannot be taken after 20 years. The ever-changing nature will not bring back the same perspective to capture the scenes by a lens anymore in the future,” expressed the minister while valuing the merits of such occasions.

The exhibition will continue till October 13 at the fourth floor of Radisson Blu Chittagong Bay View from 10 am to 5 pm.
