Bideshi Photostudio / Ferdosi 8 years

Photography, Portrait, Analogue / Traditional, Photographic paper, 100x125x10cm, 2009
When wandering through rural Bangladesh with a camera in your hand the sentence
„Bideshi…chobi, chobi…! – Stranger! Take a photo of me!” will soon be heard all around.
An unbelievably delighted eagerness to be photographed is definitely there.
The project BIDESHI Photostudio, which started off in December 2008 after intense
preparations and diligent planning by Austrian Kurt Hoerbst, first and foremost provided
a welcome opportunity to earn money for the men of Rudrapur.
The experienced bamboo and clay specialists constructed a simple but impressive building
within a month’s work – by hand!
The daylight studio offered locals to be photographed professionally from the beginning of February 2009.
A glass roof and light Sari-fabrics on the side walls created a soft ambience in combination
with the clay ground and back wall.
While project assistant Alexandra Grill took digital photos of the families,
Kurt Hoerbst photographed the villagers analogue in a large format system.
The digital data was edited, printed and laminated the same and passed on to the curious
models the next day.
