Black & White Karachi Street Walking

Join Arif Mehmood on a black and white photographic trip to Saddar Town, Karachi’s central business district.

Armed with a manual Leica camera and wide-angle lenses, Arif Mehmood captures everyday life of Karachi on a fast fading medium which keeps him sane.

His pictures do speak aloud, I say!

    Sorry, big problems at home. So I see your diaries tonight only. This blog entry is majestuous and simple at the same time. Your faces are al these of kings and I can understand how much you may frighten the West. And meanwhile, our lives are the same. How stupid to fight when the main things are the main values and we share them!!
    Pease would you say a prayer for us? The Girls are in a cottage hospital that is a nursing home for the elderly, as well. They are too young. I have a burnout. Sleep with pills an tablets,, exhausted, cannot eat. I am alone in the house and will know tomorrow i have to be hospitalized myself. I hope not.

      Oh my!
      Of course I would pray for you and girls. You are one brave soul and have gone through so much in such a little time. My prayers are with you and The Girls and INSHA ALLAH, all of you will be back to your normal lives.

      I’m sure The Girls and you are well now. Uzair also got sick earlier this week because of weather change here. Its not much cold as per Western standard but it is dry and dusty outside. That made him sick and I took him to doctor twice. He took sick leaves too from school because of this.
      But he is better now!
