Omi’s photography exhibits the equipoise between space and human identity. Most of his photographs were taken at various warzones and dictatorships, from Somalia to Burma. Instead of replicating and imitating the dire conditions that are part and parcel of human existence within these warzones, Chowdhury’s photography captures the levity, beauty, and randomness of people’s lives in these places. It is ultimately an homage to undying human spirit that refuses to wither even in the most desperate of circumstances. He has also ventured into the world of fashion photography and has photographed ballerinas, yogis and fashion models for various spreads and sub-shoots. Omi has had three solo shows in Berlin, Boston and Ann Arbor, respectively. His work has been featured in LAT, Vogue Italia and in galleries in Chicago, Indianapolis, Prague, Munich and Abu Dhabi. Omi will also be doing an installment for the Smithsonian in Dec 2013.
