We are please to present the ZEKE Rohingya Forum. This is inspired by the feature article from the Fall 2016 issue of ZEKE magazine "Rohingya and Stateless" with photographs by Sheikh Rajibul Islam, Marta Tucci, and David Verberckt.
David Verberckt is an independent reportage photographer currently living in Budapest, Hungary. After exhibiting his first documentary reportages in the early nineties, David has turned to working with NGOs and has spent twenty years working worldwide in humanitarian emergency and development with Médecins Sans Frontières and later the EU. He keeps his photographic work close to people, their destinies, hence David’s reportages portray peculiarities of an often deprived civil society affected by latent or bygone conflict. David has been working on several projects such as Frozen Conflicts in the Caucasus depicting the ordinary people whose life is in limbo following the conflicts of the nineties, and Palestinian Chronicles as a continuation of the series taken in early nineties, focusing on the daily realities of the numerous refugee camps' population. Recently, he is working on subjects depicting hard labor and seasonal migration flows in the overpopulated Bengal bay and documenting statelessness of Bihari and Rohingya. www.socialdocumentary.net/photographer/davidverberckt
