TITLE: "Tears of water"
High tide and river erosion in the northern and southern region of Bangladesh has now become a yearly catastrophe. Every year, millions of people suffer from the overflowing of the river Jamuna and face serious flooding events. During the rainy days, the northern Bangladesh faces heavy rainfall which causes the river to overflow. Also, melting of the ice-caps of the Himalayas and sedimentation of the river beds also play mentionable roles in these flooding events. Every year, people are stranded and submerged into the water for days. Stuck without enough food, water and shelter- these people go through immense suffering every year.

Hi, my name is Sharwar Hussain Apu. I started taking interest in photography as a hobby back in 2015. Since then , I have traveled almost allover Bangladesh taking pictures of different events, people and cultures.
Documentary Photography is my strong suit. That’s why I like to think myself as an artist and a storyteller when it comes to describing my role as a photographer. I fill my frames with stories that everyone ignores but needs to be told. They are of the voiceless, the helpless and the forsaken. My recent ongoing long term documentary project on climate change under the title are " Tears of global warming " and " Tears of water .
