My love for the country began at a young age, however my childhood led me to Dubai, where I was brought up and surrounded by the flashing lights and the cutting images captured by such artist who let me to my passion for photography. My journey later led me to the USA where I learned about the various misconceptions and negative connotation of Pakistan in the eyes of the western world. Society only knew of the facts that were given to them through various social media outlets but no one knew the true beauty and innocence behind such a precious country. I was determined to show the world the exquisiteness behind the things society viewed as ordinary and small. Through my eye for detail and my focus on the natural scene, I have brought to life the trivial phenomena of the ordinary and unknown. I was determined to allow the outside world to see the true reality and the purity of the cities full of treasures and selflessness. I want to portray the untold stories.
