About Habiba Nowrose

I am a photographer based in Dhaka, Bangladesh. I am particularly interested in subjects that explore human relationship and gender identities. I am more inclined to take portraits as it allows the space for many different interpretations. Often my portraits are made after elaborate preparation. In my artistic process I carefully take mental note of the objects, colors, patterns and locations that attract me repeatedly. These elements play a fundamental role in my image making process. This process is psychological and interactive at the same time. I work in color and different color has different meaning for me. Taking decisions regarding these details are part of my preparation. I thoroughly enjoy this process as I enjoy image making.
