    I am a photojournalist, feature writer, and editor. I am particularly interested in documentary photography of historical architectural and cultural heritage of my country, Pakistan. As a documentary photographer, my work for www.orientalarchitecture.com and www.Dawn.com has brought the historical architecture of my country to the public attention. It is, in fact, an effort to bring people closer to the heritage. A graduate of Beaconhouse National University School of Journalism, I am based in Lahore, Pakistan.
