As one of the most successful media agencies in Bangladesh, Drik has extensive experience in organising exhibitions, events and publishing. Drik is the key organising partner and initiator of ChobiMela – International Photography Festival, the largest of its kind in Asia. Therefore, the agency has extensive experience in organising large-scale exhibitions, as well as corresponding events. The Drik Gallery is the largest privately owned gallery in Bangladesh, and has hosted a number of high-profile exhibitions since its inauguration. Drik has also published a number of highly successful photography books, such as Shahidul Alam’s BIRTH PANGS OF A NATION (which collaborated with a number of experts and writers), as well as publishing BANGLADESH SEEN FROM WITHIN, a successful photography book focusing on native Bangladeshi portrayals of the country, also edited by Alam. Drik Images is currently the leading photo agency in South Asia. It has a unique and growing collection of images from all over the world, ranging from historical photographs of the 1971 war of liberation in Bangladesh to early 20th century glass plates, to large format architectural photographs and high-resolution digital images. The library is as much an archive, as a source of stock images that is updated with new work on a daily basis.
