About the Book
The photographs featured in this magazine are displayed chronologically—from the youngest baby of 2 months to the oldest man aged 102 years, forging a narrative that honours the strength, endurance and resilience of the Rohingya people.
This is a non-profit initiative. The income generated is reinvested in the production of the next issue of the magazine. The project aims to promote self-expression and skills development through the medium of photography. It provides the Rohingya youth with a creative platform, enabling the Rohingya community to be known not just for their marginalization, but for their creativity, talent and aspirations for the future.
Rohingyatographer is a unique photography project created by a collective of talented Rohingya photographers based in the world’s largest refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. The magazine serves as a creative platform for the youth to develop their photography skills and use the medium as a tool for self-expression, community development, and participatory action research. By aligning with methods such as PhotoVoice, the project aims to raise awareness about the Rohingya community and their situation, while also providing a historical record of their lives and experiences in the refugee camps.
