Love Studio depicts the portraits of a working-class community where an old studio in Dhaka transforms into a neighborhood venue to represent the dreams, hopes and desires of the factory workers, their families and unemployed neighbors.

Love Studio is a portrait series about a studio in Jurain, Dhaka. This is a commercial area and its home to numerous industries. Many who work here strive for a better life but nothing much changes in their world and life continues in the same way. For them, the studio offers a chance to perform any role they want and escape from the reality of their life. The scenic backdrop is versatile where people from all walks of life can become a hero, a king or act out their dreams and hopes.
