Galleries, museums and organisations are displaying images by Shahidul Alam. This mass action is in solidarity with Shahidul, and to raise awareness of the movement to free him.
Shahidul is an internationally recognised and award-winning photographer, human rights activist and digital pioneer.
On 6 August, he was charged and imprisoned in Bangladesh after giving an interview to Al-Jazeera on the current wave of student protests there.
Amnesty International considers Shahidul a prisoner of conscience, detained for nothing but the legitimate use of his freedom of expression, and therefore calls for his immediate and unconditional release.
