Ongoing Projects:

Fine Art Photography

— Nowhere Series

This series explores placeless-ness of iconic spaces and place-fullness of nameless spaces

This is shot across Europe, The US, Middle East and India and is an ongoing project

— Venus of Wearhouse

— Mom’s Houses

— Heritage Pop

Photo-based Art Series

— Acid Rain in the Emperor’s Bedroom

This series is a work that inlays layers into pictures of now-deserted, but previously glorious Mughal palaces. The pictures are vandalised by hand to reveal the hints of its glorious past with work that has gold leaf and precious metals

— The Green DIagonal

This series has abstract minimalist photography that is animated by a vivid diagonal paint line that intercepts the near-nothingness in the photo to give it dynamic graphic tension

Digital Work

— Graphic Poetry

Here I use classical Persian and Urdu poetry of the mystical genre to make calligraphy that is abstract, attempted or simply abandoned mid-way


— ‘Weeping Lamp’

— Glass bag


— ‘Peak Pleasure of a drop is to self-annihilate in the river’
