Bangladesh Indigenous Women: Mahmud

Over 50 different indigenous societies live in Bangladesh, and women are the most excluded from the rest of society. Mahmud, of MAP Photo Agency, has photographed these populations for the last decade. This exhibition of his work, co-hosted by ActionAid and the Bangladesh Indigenous People’s Forum will be held at Drik Gallery on August 7-13, 2008.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find Mahmud's work on the web, but his image of the woman above is indicative of his talents.
