"Female faces in posters commonly are scrapped or overwritten", photos by Sudeepto Salam

Suddepto Salam, Dhaka, Bangladesh based photojournalist and fine art photographer documents and interesting feature of urban city life.


In the journey from feudalism to capitalism, masculine will always dominated the whole world. Bangladesh is no exception. Here, in most of the cases, males don’t come in contact with the females except their mothers and sisters.


They need to sit separately even in the co-education schools. As males can’t lead a regular life with the females until their marriage, they can’t imagine a normal relationship with them. Males preserve a secret desire about females in their psyche and often that desire is expressed from their sub conscious part of mind. That is the reason why we often find the portraits or pictures of females are scraped or overwritten on posters, stickers and newspapers. Dhaka-based photojournalist and fine-art photographer Sudeepto Salam started taking these photos since April 2015 from the capital of Bangladesh.
