What is your artistic background?
I am a self taught audio visual artist. I did not get any formal training but I like to create photos using my instincts and emotions. I started my career in radio and spent three years dedicated recording stories of women and children on taboo issues in Pakistan like having HIV, rape, domestic violence. 

 

What is your view on your profession today?
My passion remains the same : cover women issues and persecuted minorities but now I do it in portraits, writings and audio. Coming to France has given me a bigger audience and a possibility to work with other artists and also to get a formal training at school in Paris. It's a new beginning.

 

How do you see yourself in 5 years? In 10 years?
I want to be able to keep highlighting problems and emotions of humans especially women and make a difference with my work. My aim is always to connect communities, to record history, to preserve feelings and to improve state of human rights in the world.
