If there is any question about the social impact of photography, there’s no better example than Shahidul Alam’s three-decade oeuvre and dedication to his native Bangladesh.

Spurred by the power of the camera, Alam swapped careers after obtaining a Ph.D. in organic chemistry from the University of London. He returned to Dhaka in 1984, where his campaign against the autocratic regime of General Hussain Muhammad Ershad began.In his first exhibition in a U.S. museum, over 40 photographs highlight his purpose to reveal the truth. ‘Shahidul Alam: Truth to Power’ at New York’s Rubin Museum has works from Alam’s ‘A Struggle for Democracy’ series, in which ordinary people are turned into heroes. … [Read more...] about Photography meets activism: Shahidul Alam’s New York exhibition

Hardy of the 21st Hussars wrote in 1878, in his book Our Horses. The Colonel set out for his hunt, and some 30 yards away, he saw what he thought was a single large beast lying fast asleep. “I fired.
