Shamim Shorif Susom is a talented photographer and Air Force pilot from Dhaka, Bangladesh. As a pilot, he has access to breathtaking and dramatic bird’s-eye views of rivers, lakes and green landscapes in his motherland during his flights. Shamim took the images while flying over the south Asian countryside where he was raised. His images provide a unique look at daily life for villagers whose lifeline is fertile farmland and paddy fields, and fishermen who set out every day on rivers or lakes in traditional boats.
