In Farhad Rahman’s series “Song of a Coast,” beaches in Bangladesh along the Bay of Bengal become the stage for the quiet or absurd drama of rising sea levels. The series records life along 360 miles of coast—a stray dog stretches, a boy pulls a net in the surf, lunching goats share space with bright beach chairs and the remnants of trees are subsumed by the beach. In the pale, milky light, the scenes feel distant. “Song of a Coast” is on view until August 17 at Rubber Factory in New York City. Along with the photographs, the gallery will live-stream video from Rahman’s studio in Dhaka, with the aim, they write, of creating “a living, breathing exhibition which brings faraway practices” into the gallery.
