Indian Silverbills, by Saniar Rahman Rahul

In one early winter morning, nine of us went to Ekuria, a place not that far from the capital Dhaka to photograph Siberian Ruby Throat. After reaching there when we started to take preparation, I saw these baby Indian Silverbills just few feet away from me. Surprisingly, none of them were afraid of my present and moments later their parents joined and feed them while I was busy taking their photographs.

Saniar Rahman Rahul was the first winner for ‘Photo of the Month Award’ in June 2010. He was fascinated by seeing his father taking pictures with a camera while his family was in Iraq during his childhood. Later in life, in 1997, while he became very much attached with his profession of ‘graphic design’, Rahul rediscovered the creative side of photography. He started his career as a professional graphic designer in October of 1995, in a pre-press house called Color Scan, which is one of the pioneers in the pre-process printing media in Bangladesh. Afterwards, he moved to Power Point, another pre-press house. Before he finally settled into advertising, he also worked in an IT company called Abtab IT. Moving to advertising from printing media was a big step for him. In 2005, he joined G3, a special wing of Gray Worldwide. Two years later, he moved to Paper Rhyme. Now he is working as the Art Director of Grey World Wide, one of the ten largest advertising agencies in the world.
