Following an international search, the Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology, Harvard University, is pleased to announce the selection of Munem Wasif as the 2023 Robert Gardner Fellow in Photography. The fellowship provides a $50,000 stipend to begin or complete a proposed project followed by the publication of a book.


Based in Dhaka, Bangladesh, Munem Wasif is a photographer, mixed media artist, curator, and teacher. He will use his non-residential fellowship to work on Nil (নীল) (the Sanskrit for “indigo”), a photographic, archival, and mixed-media project he describes as a “layered narrative about the critical history of indigo in Bengal.”
