MA Taher receives Life Time Achievement Award


An international seminar on "Rotary Public Image" was held at Hotel Regency (organised by R I District 3281) on September 13. Inspirational speech was delivered by renowned Rotarians from India, Pakistan, Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand and Bangladesh. Noted photojournalist MA Taher has received the Life Time Achievement Award at the event. He received the award from Rotary International Director Shekhar Mehta, Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Huq, Lions Past District Governors Forum (PDG Forum) A K M Zainul Abedin and prominent Rotarian Vinod Kumar Khanna.
Photojournalist and writer M.A. Taher started his photography career about three decades ago. Taher always maintains a low key profile but his works rather speak for himself. He has already got ten pictorial books to his credit. He has also taken part in sixteen photographic exhibitions in Bangladesh and eight exhibitions in USA, UK, Japan, France, Netherlands, Thailand, Nepal and India. His camera zooms on famous personalities, nature, animals, endangered subjects, et al.
The photographer had long association with poet Shamsur Rahman, singer Kalim Sharafi, Professor Kabir Chowdhury, Professor Zillur Rahman Siddiqui and others. He has also brought out pictorial books on these famous personalities during their lifetime. Some of his well-acclaimed publications are Indigenous people of the Chittagong Hill Tracts of Bangladesh, Flowers of Bangladesh, Boats of Bangladesh and Birds of Bangladesh. The publications are very informative.
Taher love to collect paintings that have good aesthetic sense. He would love to bring out art related books from his publishing house 'Somothot.' He has already brought out a book titled "Qayyum Chowdhury-r Rekhachitro".  Many more are in the pipeline. He has established a farm house in Narayangonj in a picturesque setting to facilitate the painters to paint on a natural environment. Artists like Samorjit Roy Chowdhury, Monirul Islam, Hashem Khan, Ranjit Das, Jamal Ahmed, and many others visit his place from time to time and paint there.
