Of River and Lost Lands

Sarker Protick, Bangladesh


The relationship between man and river; intimate and ruthless. For generations people live by it. We find dependency and destruction at the same time. It’s a contradictory affair. The river gives so much to its people and at times it takes away everything.


Sarker Protick came to photography when one day during his graduate studies at University, he decided to take a picture of the sun with a camera phone. The bright sun immediately crashed his phone, the light proving too intense for his camera, but it did ignite his desire to make pictures.



Photo-poetry: Ecstasies and other Teresian visions

Avani Tanya, India; Gayatri Ganju, India; & Diniz Sánchez, Portugal


Performance based on a photographic translation of the poetry of Teresa of Ávila, also called Saint Teresa of Jesus, one of the foremost mystic writers.
