Kazi Anisul Haque Borun is a theatre artiste, designer, choreographer and director. Apart from directing several well-received short films, Borun has a passion for photography. Focusing mostly on the minute details of nature, he artistically captures the light and shades reflected on the barks of trees. A semblance of intertwined human figures, visages and others forms and objects are apparent in his photo artworks.
The opening ceremony of his solo exhibition, Introspection took place at Zainul Gallery-2, Faculty of Fine Art (FFA), University of Dhaka (DU) on April 24. Eminent litterateur Professor Syed Manzoorul Islam inaugurated the exhibition as the chief guest. Renowned artist Professor Nisar Hossain, Dean of FFA, DU; celebrated photographer Nasir Ali Mamun and Bengal Foundation DG Luva Nahid Choudhury attended the event as the special guests.
The simple cracks and fissures on the barks of trees expose multifarious designs. With the changing course of nature and sunlight, the colours and textures of the focused areas take different looks in his works.
The photographs on display stand out for their artistic appeal as they are arranged colourfully with tonal gradation and superb textures. The exhibition, opening from 11am to 8pm daily, will conclude on May 7.
