A journalist + 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.
For the past two years Adib has documented the forced migration caused by the Syrian conflict reporting from the fringes of the conflict and following refugees as they made their way through the Balkans. In 2017 he documented and took witness statements of survivors of what the UN described as 'Ethnic cleansing' of the Rohingya occurring in Myanmar.
With a background in politics (MSc in international relations and Conflict Studies at the London School of Economics) his projects contain a heavy emphasis on research and giving agency to those photographed. The themes of forced migration, identity, and how conflict shapes personal and societal identity are of special interest.
His written and photographic work has taken him across the Middle East, Europe, and South Asia, and has been featured in Guardian, Agence France Presse, BBC World service, Al Jazeera Plus, Financial Times, The Independent, WIRED, Le Monde, and more.
Readily available for assignments in the Middle East, South Asia, and Europe. Typically, he avoids writing about himself in third person.
