This will be presented on four large-scale photographic cubes corresponding to each of the four freedoms — Freedom of speech & expression, Freedom of worship, Freedom from want, and Freedom from fear — the exhibition is the first of its kind held at the Presidential Memorial.
Photo Essay titled as “Fear to Freedom of Rohingya Refugees” story will show, after fleeing from Myanmar to Bangladesh, how they are leading life with support of NGO’s.
*About the _Capture your Freedom_ Exhibition*
In celebration of FDR’s pivotal 1941 address, photographers were encouraged to explore the meaning and legacy of these freedoms— freedom of speech & expression, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear—and how they related to our lives today, answering such questions as: How do we achieve freedom? What does it mean to be free? How do defend freedom today?
