Part of the festival at HAU will be a double photo exhibition – a collaboration between two young photographers: Karachi-based Khaula Jamil and Berlin-based Pablo Lauf.

“Much like the people of Karachi, the leaves of the Peepal tree (indigenous to the sub-continent) move continuously even when the air around them is still and no perceptible wind is blowing. Inspired by this energy seemingly found within, Karachi-based Khaula Jamil and Berlin-based Pablo Lauf collaborate to bring forth intriguing photographic stories of individuals from Karachi. Through their varying techniques, of the insider moving swiftly yet intimately through the lives of people she meets on the streets to the outsider spending days in closed spaces with each person he photographs, their perceptions clash and mesh with startling harmony, bringing forth a portrait of a city that just refuses to stop living.”
