Ashfika Rahman (b. 1988, Bangladesh) holds a Professional Diploma in Photography from Pathshala, Dhaka, having also studied at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Hannover, Germany (2017). Straddling art and documentary, Rahman draws inspiration from historical archives, which she re-contextualises using contemporary media. Inspired by her mother, a social activist, she began working with marginalised people in Bangladesh: predominately those in tribal and ethnic groups experiencing subjugation and violence. In each of her works, Rahman aims to challenge the mainstream perspective towards these issues.
