A few days ago I came back from a 2-week trip in Pakistan, where I spent my time between Karachi and Lahore. It gave me the occasion to snap a lot of photos, mostly portraits. I realised along the way that shooting straight “traditional” portraits was somehow repetitive and boring, and didn’t give out enough space to the location. Being a country that few visit, it was also important to me to incorporate the context in which I shot my subjects. Reminiscing of a photo I had taken last year in Karachi under the Gizri bridge, I decided to focus on people who were casually hanging out. I found my subjects at the immigrant colony I visited in Karachi, in a train station where my train stopped on my way to Lahore, and around the Badshahi Mosque in Lahore.
