Photographer Daniel Ali is one of those people who just seems to see things differently. His series Searching for Karachi is a collection of images taken in Pakistan, where he set about rejecting the archetypal view of the country in favour of adequately depicting “the volatile life for Karachiites” which so often remains veiled from Western visitors. The resulting photographs show security guards watching CCTV footage, prisoners kept behind bars and vendors walking on the beaches trying to sell their wares, where other photographers would happily have settled for hundreds of digital images of bright fabrics and bags of spices in a street market. Refreshing and honest, the images are a welcome alternative.
Daniel’s next project will focus on his search for Ugandan witch doctors, so watch this space!
