Photojournalism helped me grow closer to my culture and heritage; it continues to encourage me to pursue stories that focus on what I personally hold dear. Currently, I am freelancing in Karachi, Pakistan for the New York Times along with local publications and am teaching Intro to Photography and Photojournalism as a visiting professor at the Institute of Business Management.
I graduated from the Rochester Institute of Technology with a degree in Photojournalism.
As a South Asian Muslim, I am personally invested in narratives throughout the Muslim world, especially in South Asia. I am working to document truthful narratives of minority communities, humanitarian crises, sociopolitical issues, and progressive culture.
Additionally, portraiture forms a large portion of my work with environmental portraits being the most rewarding. My proficiency in manipulating light shapes my editorial and advertising portraiture. I photograph with intention and often use practical, ambient light to motivate the environment while maintaining harmony with my strobes.
*I am first and foremost a photojournalist, honoring and practicing the NPPA’s code of ethics in my journalistic work.
