I AM KARACHI MUSEUM


Recently, I was invited to 'I Am Karachi Museum', an event in which young photographers of Karachi participated. The two day event presented by The School of Writing in association with I Am Karachi and was held at Alliance Fran├žaise de Karachi on 12th-13h June, 2015.

The whole purpose of the event was to show that Karachi is more than just target killings and protests. During the 4 week activity, young photographers captured all the districts of Karachi. Let me share some pictures with you.

There was a live dhaaba at the event serving parathas and doodhpatti giving pure Karachi touch!





It was a very well organised event! More such activities must take place to show people that Karachi is still an alive city!
