About the Book
This book showcases the work of 14 photographers who traversed Bangladesh with the authors, to shoot pictures there, and to learn a little bit more about the subtleties of Travel Photography. Bangladesh is probably not a destination for the usual average tourist, which is why it is so appealing to photographers. Bangladesh is raw and gritty. It is fascinating. And mesmerizing. The people are incredibly friendly. And local food is delicious. Prices for everything are very reasonable. And almost everybody in Bangladesh loves to have their pictures taken. Most of all, there is a picture to be shot everywhere you turn. Truly a photographer's paradise. There are more than 140 pictures in this book, and high resolution enlargements are also available for purchase from the editors on behalf of the copyright owners.
This book is the fourth in the series of PhotoSafari Coffee table Books written by Yusuf Hashim and Maxby Chan, for participants of the Photo Safaris Yusuf and Maxby regularly conduct to exotic places for photographers. There have been 4 Photo Safaris over recent months, and the Coffee Table books for those photo safaris are all published here at Blurb. Their respective titles are Amazing Siem Reap, The Other Side of Angkor, and Dep Kua Vietnam (Beautiful Vietnam). Click on the Author's Bookstore Tab above to preview those books.
A Photo Safari to the Old Silk Road has just been completed and the next Coffee Table Book in this series will be about The Old Silk Road. It will be available here at Blurb.com during the first quarter of 2010.
