Current work

“My ongoing project that I have been working on since 2017 is a visual documentation of the marginalisation of a minority community in Pakistan called Ahmadis. I see my work in different chapters and one of those is a photobook that I am working on that is a tongue and cheek interplay of photographs and text in the form of a survival guide. ”
