Solo photography exhibition titled "Concepts of Space and Rabindranath Tagore", by famous Indian photographer Samit Das, was held from February 06 to 12, 2014 at Galerie Zoom of Alliance Française de Dhaka.  
Viewers were enchanted to know about the artistic quality and enormous talent of Ramkinkar Baiz, K Okakura, Abanindranath Tagore by this photography exhibition.
Here, Ramkinkar Baiz, Indian sculptor and painter, deserves a paragraph as he is one of the pioneers of modern Indian sculpture still today.
 This classy photography exhibition is a diminutive endeavour to throw light on the immense vastness that this subject covers. Samit Das was born in 1970 in Jamshedpur, specialises in Painting, Photography, Interactive art works and artist's book creating multi-sensory environments through art and architectural installations.
The eye-catching photographs prove the tremendous skill of the artist in this particular area of art. Das has deep interest on archiving. He has held solo shows in Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Mumbai, Singapore and London.
Most importantly, the artist is not a newcomer at all in the Tagore related research. Rather, he has several artworks associated Tagore.
Visitors came to the photography exhibition, expressed their feelings to the Daily Observer
about the artworks.  Anindita, a photography lover came to the exhibition, illustrated
about the artistry of Tagore. As a photographer Samit Das is able to enchant the viewers.
He has done the Tagore's architecture show titled - "The Idea of space and Rabindranath Tagore" at different venue like Lalit Kala Academy New Delhi, India International Centre, New Delhi, Victoria Memorial Kolkata and Freies Museum Berlin.
It is very true that Tagore's concept of space and architecture is a vast area of exploration and it is extremely difficult to express it through just a few visuals within a limited space in its entire entity.
