To mark World Refugee Day 2022, Rohingyatographer Magazine presents a virtual exhibition featuring the unique photographic work by a collective of Rohingya photographers based in the world’s largest refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. 

The exhibition deals with the subject of identity through intimate recordings of the daily lives of a displaced community. Exploring themes of memory, hope, faith, beauty, craftsmanship, grief, loss and love among the Rohingya refugee community, this exhibition presents a collective portrait that honours the strength, endurance and resilience of the Rohingya people. 

The exhibition has been curated by David Palazón collaboratively with Sahat Zia Hero with photographs by Ro Yassin Abdumonaf, Shahida Win, Azimul Hasson, Abdullah Khin Maung Thein, Hujjat Ullah, Md Jamal, Enayat Khan, Sahat Zia Hero, Md Iddris and Omal Kahir. 

The exhibition has been made possible with the generous support of the Spanish Embassy in Dhaka, the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID) and Casa Asia in Barcelona. 


The exhibition was accompanied by a webinar hosted by Casa Asia in Barcelona, supported by the Spanish Embassy in Dhaka, and in collaboration with Médecins Sans Frontières and UNHCR in Bangladesh.
