This month's #BJPTakeover photographer teaches at the Pathshala South Asian Media Institute

We were among the first to recognise the work of Bangladeshi photographer Sarker Protick, including him in our annual Ones to Watch selection in 2014, the same year he was selected for the World Press Photo Joop Swart Masterclass. The next year was just as eventful – in 2015 he won a World Press Photo award, was listed in PDN’s 30 emerging photographers and was invited to join VII Photo Agency.

Currently, he’s lecturing at the famed Pathshala South Asian Media Institute, featured in the latest BJP, which focuses on photography learning. “Storytelling has always been one of the strengths of Pathshala and that’s what the students want to learn,” he tells Ahmed Shawki and Simon Bainbridge in the Education issue.

We asked him to take over our Instagram this month – here’s a glimpse inside his process:
