I am Zia Raihan was born on 8th February 1963 in Bangladesh.But my official date of Birth is 7th March 1965. As a Photographer and Poet, I use his name as Zia Raihan but my real name is Abu Saleh Mohammod Ziaul Hoque Raihan. I was a poet in the beginning and published four books.Soon figured out that my canvas for writing was not paper. I am still writing Poems but through the lenses of camera.I realized my passion for Photography and visual effects during the early years of my life, which has driven me to gain the fundamental knowledge of Photography via Basic and Foundation courses. further gathered academic knowledge in the fields of art, history and sociology. Currently, my passion has impelled me to do a 3-Year Diploma in Photography at the South Asian Institute of Photography (Pathshala) Dhaka,Bangladesh. But one year later, I voluntarily withdrew myself.
