GBM Akash, a native of Bangladesh, is a prominent and award-winning photojournalist. He has received over 100 international awards and his work has been featured in major publications such as National Geographic, The Guardian, Vogue, The Economist etc. His photographs and stories aim to deliver heart-wrenching tales of neglected people arising from grave social issues.

A sole exhibition of GMB Akash, ‘Soulscapes’, hosted by Fine Art Maldives, was inaugurated by, Minister of Arts, Culture & Heritage of the Maldives, Ms. Yumna Maumoon, on, 4th November.


Our team visited the exhibition on day 1. From the very first item displayed in the exhibition to the very last, it was an emotional rollercoaster. Our hearts ache for the people living in these unfortunate circumstances. Through the photographs and stories captured by GMB Akash, it was a wonderful opportunity, for us, the fortunate people of the society, to empathize and acknowledge the hardships of these incredible humans fighting for survival.

The exhibition will be showcased from 4th November to 6th November at the National Art Gallery between 10am-2pm and 4pm-10pm. It is open to the public and is free of entrance. We recommend everyone to take some time out of your day to visit the exhibition as a notion of listening to the unheard voices.
