Martijn’s pick: Sophia

This is Sophia. For her full story click the link below




I love the portrait and story of Sophia, a grand old Lady, Queenlike in her beautiful saree. What catches me is the way she tells about her life, touching on the lives of her 5 children, on the history and development of that amazing city Dhaka, which she saw grow and helped create. The proudness about her teaching and writing in Bangla language, publishing books. And all these stories and experiences told while she was in her own apartment, filled with photos and memories. Seemingly looking into the here and now, with all of her history still alive around her.
