I’m currently on a Fulbright teaching photography workshops and presenting work in Islamabad, Rawalpindi and Lahore. Photography is a universal language and through it I hope to explore the creative process as well as the practical uses and applications for documentary work in an ever changing digital landscape.
This is my first visit to Pakistan and as is often the case the reality on the ground is very different from what I expected. Islamabad is a planned city that was built in the early sixties with houses and parks that would fit right into an affluent suburb in southern California. It’s cleaner then most American cities. There are no public buses or cinema’s but several really good book stores.
In between classes I plan to explore the “other” Pakistan with my students. The one that isn’t reported on. The people I have met here have been extremely welcoming and pro-photography. This makes a world of a difference for the kind of photography practice that interests me most.
