The Story of Pain & Faith.
The photographs in this series are all about Pain and Faith, made at different sufi shrines of Srinagar, Kashmir, where the believers pray and ask for forgiveness and healing of their wounded souls and of their restless minds. The faith that they have in their creator brings them to these holy places and relieve their pain that life has given them. The hope to attain peace in their lives is what keeps them alive.
Pain has always been one of the driving forces behind my work as that is what I've seen and felt, In the eyes of the people, behind their faint smiles, pain is everywhere. Pain is the strongest connection to know a person, I believe. It doesn’t require words. Whenever I see people crying, I feel like those are my tears falling through their eyes.
