Kami Sid

Kami Sid and the Power of Personality

Published in Maekan on May 8th, 2019 

While on holiday in Karachi, Pakistan, I connected with writer Mahira Jamshed who lived in the city at the time. 


Mahira had already published on Maekan in the past, and pitched them the story of Kami Sid, the first Pakistani transexual fashion model. We met with Kami at her office from where she runs an organization raising awareness on the LGBT community and fighting for trans rights in Pakistan. 

The shoot was very straight forward, a few portraits on Kodak Portra 400 film outside her office, armed with a Leica M6 and a reflector.
