FRIDAY 15 AUGUST

Presented by John Wilson


SHAHIDUL ALAM
John Wilson talks to photographer and photojournalist Shahidul Alam who single handedly introduced e-mail to Bangladesh and set up a media agency, all to counteract the stereotypical images of his country as a place dominated by floods and poverty.

His current exhibition 'Migrations' at Gallery Oldham displays portraits of migrants and their lives in their new communities and runs until 27 September.
