Photo Editors Series – Abir Abdullah

The Photo Editors Series are conversations with well-known photo editors about how they view the media today, the role of visuals in reporting, the work they like to see, and advice for photographers on how best to connect with publishers.

Hosted by David Campbell and Ilvy Njiokiktjien, the series will combine an overview of the contemporary media landscape with practical tips. The editors in the series will speak as individuals rather than representatives of their organizations, and the event will be interactive with good opportunities for audience questions.

In this eleventh episode, Ilvy Njiokiktjien speaks with Abir Abdullah. He discusses his work as a photo editor with The Daily Prothom Alo, the most circulated newspaper in Bangladesh. Abdullah is currently a photography teacher at Alliance Française de Dhaka. In this episode, he also presents the editorial projects he undertakes with his students.
