I will die, in autumn, in kashmir,
and the shadowed routine of each vein
will almost be news, the blood censored,
for the saffron sun and the times of rain- agha shahid ali

A couple of weeks ago, i got this opportunity to shoot a campaign for @thesummerhouse.in .

it was such an incredible experience being a part of this beautifully conceptualised campaign- being alice

being alice (from alice in wonderland) is about the women who seeks to explore the unexplored. the women with the wild imagination, and this time her curiosity has brought her to none other than kashmir.
it was a lot of fun shooting this campaign, and just like the story it was based on it came with challenges. it’s not as easy as it looks to set and capture a certain mood but thanks to the everyone working on the project we managed to get some beautiful content.

@modelnisha7
@amanmannan

@theguyfromkashmir
thank you @thesummerhouse.in for the opportunity. and for those reading this, check out their collection. there’s an alice in everyone!

Dua labon pe,
chashm tarr thay,
haath phailaaye
jo dekha aasmaano mein,

wahin kahin
aasman mein
tum thay na?

taari jab khauf tha
dehshat thi
aur veeraniyan,
andhere mein
jo awaaz-e-ummeed aarahi thi
wo tum thay na?

wahin kahin
aasman mein
tum thay na?

It’s considered one of the happiest places on earth and i can definitely see why - norway is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places on earth. it's home to so many natural wonders, the drive from oslo to bergen left us stunned.
this place in particular, was no easy feat. it’s a 28km hike, going up to an altitude of 1,100 meters and we chose the over night hike. so yes sleeping under the stars in sub zero temperatures. did i mention my wife has never actually been hiking before. so how did we survive you may wonder..it was all thanks to @trolltunga_adventures . @mariushauso made sure we went up at a relaxed pace, treated as to the most delicious norwegian snacks, we spent hours talking about philosophy, religion, current affairs, and norwegian history and culture. it was like friends reunited. we got to trolltunga at the perfect time so we didn’t even have to wait in line (which we read can take over an hour) for pictures. their camp site was at an even better spot overlooking the lake and a 15 min hike from where this picture was taken - which for us was actually an ever better spot than trolltunga itself. these guys take care of everything, whilst we were enjoying the sunset they brought us warm cooked meals and when it was time to fall asleep, they left us hot water bottles in our sleeping bags to make sure we were comfortable. if you are planning to do the hike to trolltunga, @trolltunga_adventures really are the people to do this with. marius- thank you for this photograph and looking forward to returning the experience when you visit us in kashmir. and for those reading, this isn’t an ad :)

Autumn hues at razdan- the gateway to gurez valley.

the best part about being stopped by the army at this spot was that we ended up spending almost three hours here while we were waiting for a green signal from the army to proceed ahead. at one point all of us thought we might not be given the required permission but somehow things worked in our favour and soon we were on our way to dawar.

Over the last few years i have spent much of my time taking and editing photos and constantly trying to improve my photography.

it is often said a photographer is one that writes with light and i feel a photo is a poem in itself. images can keep the memory of a loved one alive, hold a moment in history for future generations, be a witness to tragedy or joy. they can also change behavior, stimulate understanding and create a sense of empathy that will move people to action.
photography is a universal language that speaks to the heart and i've been trying to do my bit to present a picture of kashmir that a many are unaware of, to show kashmir how i see it, how a local sees it, how it actually is. i have been fortunate enough that my photos have reached so many different audiences and i am always so overwhelmed and excited by the support and encouragement i get from all over the world. yesterday, was one of those days that was extra special. i was honoured with the #mbillionth2018 award for culture and tourism by @defindia. this was really unexpected and left me truly humbled because the award focuses on promoting social justice, human dignity and equality through storytelling. what gave me the most comfort is that people feel through my work kashmir is accessible. there is still so much work to be done, but i wanted to share this with you so you too can see the impact that each of us can make, through social media. it is a platform that connects us and makes our world that little bit smaller.
thank you to all of you for your love and support. peace and prayers always.

Sunset at the beautiful village of choorwan in gurez. we were only 300 meters away from pakistan, infact the mountains in the background is under pakistani control. i can't believe i'm going again to this place in a few days. super excited!

Since i'm back in kashmir, i've been looking at the chinars trees and thinking of the time when they'll turn red. autumn is perhaps my most favourite season and it is arriving soon. i simply can't wait for this!
and btw autumn in kashmiri is called "harud"

I still hear your name
echoing in these valleys,
your fragrance still lingers
in these gardens,
you are here
like the air around me.
they say
you are away
across the oceans and
i smile; for they know not
of how
i breathe you.

i breathe you.
