Arafat Siraji is a journalist based in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
Growing up in Chittagong, which is near Cox’s Bazaar, I am fascinated to see people react when they visit. This place was once called “Panowa”, which means, “Yellow flower.” Yellow Flower actually symbolizes love, joy and happiness.
Arafat Siraji took up photography at a young age. He was looking for his family albums, for pieces of the puzzle that could tell him something about his own family and cultural history.
