Bangladesh photographer Mou Aysha is using her skills to spotlight the plight of street children in her country. Through moving portraits of children in Dhaka and the Bangladeshi countryside, Aysha gives a voice to those who are often unheard.
Her portraits range from tight shots against black backgrounds to photos that show the children in their environment. Through raw emotions that produce laughter and tears, her photos are steeped in empathy for these young people who are often marginalized.
As a female photographer working in Bangladesh, Aysha uses her skill and passion to guide her in an environment that is not always welcoming.
By sharing her work on social media, she has gained international recognition. When she’s not continuing her personal projects, she works as an administrator at the First Light Institute of Photography and volunteers for their social and humanitarian projects.
