About

“Zakir’s passion is street photography. His love for it has given him a deep insight into how life evolves on the streets and how an ordinary onlooker might make sense out of it. His photographs are meant to take you on a ride to a different state of mind where there is an opportunity for a greater sense of what is possible. He pitches ideas and paints stories through his powerful, intense and thought provoking photographs. The ideas underlying the visual narration concern themselves with the human soul — their aim is to give it a deep and profound meaning. Zakir’s primary subjects are people and how their environments shape their lives. He believes that a camera is a tool of communication; given a purpose to fulfil, a camera can be a powerful medium of expression. A picture is a representation of a collective consciousness of a society, and it opens a window that reflects upon the hearts and souls that shape our lives.”

“Zakir’s photographs are intended to make a difference on levels beyond the aesthetic: they are meant to penetrate the 'SYSTEM' and question the existing realm of reality in which we believe. His photograph of a homeless man in front of a bank is not only about the misery of the homeless, but how the bank has robbed him of his savings, hardwork, sweat and tears. And enslaved his future generations, in fact, all of humanity through obfuscation of money and 'usury' (hereafter also referred to as “Riba”). By not according usury its place in the system and also not understanding the central banking system, the currently accepted scholarship has failed miserably. Our intellectual misapprehension has led us into such spiritual blindness that we have become incapable of recognizing this tool of human enslavement. By connecting the dots, Zakir takes the viewer to a different sense of reality as what the human eye can see as compared to what there is to see.”
