I grew up in Pakistan and was introduced to photography at a very young age by my father. I have been taking pictures ever since. My work wanders between themes in landscape, abstraction and documentary photography, but has always centered itself on portraiture. I use my photographs to explore themes of diaspora, identity, family and home in my own life and the lives of people I photograph. My images depict and document cultural and private conflicts, as well as emotive effects of natural light, through quiet, narrative allusions. I earned my BFA from The National College of Arts in Lahore, and my MFA with distinction from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. My work has been shown in many galleries throughout Pakistan, Europe and the US. I currently live and work in the United States where I also maintain an active teaching practice.
