This Pakistani Photographer Has A Unique Eye For Seeing The World In The Most Beautiful Way

By Hurmat Riaz | 29 Apr, 2017

Maryam Arif is a Lahore based photographer and video artist. She has an eye for seeing light and beauty in some of the most darkest parts of our lives, that us regular people don’t really pay attention to. This is exactly the kind of photography she does – non-intrusive and observational, in her own words.

 

Her photography talks about hope and life, how even the darkest moment has light in it if you try hard to persevere through it.

Her photography has a yin yang balance; darkness and light, sadness and happiness, life and death. She brings out the richness and purity of everyday mundane moments of life, pouring her heart out and puts it through her camera’s eye showing that life’s intricacies are what make it happening and worth exploring.

 

Maryam has a skill of showing that life is symmetrical and connected

And yet you can find moments of peace and solitude if you just let yourself be.
