QUOTE by "Sofia Karim"

"I am delighted to support VOHH FOTO FEST. I am the niece of photographer Shahidul Alam, whose whole arena of struggle is to raise the profile of photography of our region, so that our photographers can tell our story.

Through this print sale campaign I have bought a photo that is very special to me: The photo taken by Md Shahnewaz Khan, of my uncle carrying a baby. This image became a key image of the FreeShahidul campaign. It is one of my favourite images of him. I also bought another beautiful image that reminds me of the moment in my childhood when I decided I wanted to be an architect." -
