A photojournalist currently based between Beirut and London, Adib Chowdhury was raised between the muted greens of the English countryside and the lush greens of Bangladesh's paddy-fields. His work confronts his own struggles of identity and belonging. His background in politics (MSc in international relations and Conflict Studies at the London School of Economics) and journalism informs his projects, with a heavy emphasis on research. The themes of forced migration, identity, and how conflict shapes personal and societal identity are of his interest.
With experience as a policy assistant for the United Nations Development Programme, and as a photojournalist, he has a unique insight into the bureaucratic and practical realities of working within complex political situations.
His photographic and written work has featured in Agence France Presse, BBC World service, Al Jazeera Plus, Financial Times, The Independent, WIRED, Le Monde, and more.
