World Press Photo In Dhaka: Behind The Scenes
With hundreds of people seeing the show every day, and excellent media coverage, it might appear as if the staging of WPP photo in Bangladesh was a smooth well organised affair. As Marc will testify, the reality was very different. For those of you who have seen the show at the gallery or online, this behind the scenes look will provide an amusing take on a potential disaster. The crates had arrived at Zia International Airport on the 24th of December 2003, but the journey from Zia to Dhanmondi took considerably longer. The opening was at 4:00 pm on the 7th January 2004. By 3:30 pm, the crates hadn't arrived! We did know they had left the airport, and was able to tell the Dutch Ambassador that it was safe for him to come over. The head of the caretaker government, our chief guest, Justice Habibur Rahman was already on his way. The adrenaline was flowing!
