Agha Waseem Ahmed
Raised in a urban + rural mix of mystic Sindh,Pakistan I Graduated in Electronics Engineering ,earned a masters degree in Business Administration and then joined Pakistans' Civil Services. Started photography in 2007 when I was posted in rugged, mountainous province of Baluchistan, one of the least explored parts of the world,
My passion is photographing moving trains, crossing the hilly terrains, nosing up and down the steep gradients of Bolan pass, zigzagging Do-Regs of Dalbandin , disappearing momentarily into and emerging out of endless cascaded tunnels. while focusing on Railways my perspective also encompassed Baluchistan's diverse culture, an amalgamation of Persian, Arabic, Indian and Afghan cultures.
Later on I moved to Sindh where life around mighty Indus River riveted my attention. Inheriting Sufi traditions the people and land of Sindh offer great opportunities for anyone to be a photographer and thats what I did. Satyan Jo Aastan, Moen Jo daro, Aror, Rani Kot, Kot Deji, Makli, Bhit shah, Sachal Sarmast, Shahbaz Qalandar of Sehwen etc were the few of the places where I wondered around with one eye closed and the other glued to view finder.
Nature of my job provided me ample chances to visit countless remote areas in almost whole of Pakistan. Much of it is still in binary format. Still in learning phase, I don't believe in a particular subject. Landscape, portrait, Architecture, Macro all are my favourites maybe due to my multifarious and volatile nature.
