dhaka: crossfire

last week riot police in dhaka prevented the opening of photographer shahidul alam's exhibition crossfire at drik gallery. this is a photo show on the extra-judicial killings by the notorious rapid action batallion in bangladesh which has so far cost more than 1,000 lives according to human rights groups. although crossfire merely features symbolic and allegorical photographs, it was prohibited by authorities as they feared it would cause civil unrest [!]. gallery location: road 15a, house 58 [dhanmondi]. © shahidul alam - wall
