About Lahore Streets
Pakistan has mostly been known for being on the front line of the war on terror for nearly two decades. With that came drone strikes, numerous jihadi fractions, and widespread corruption. But there is another side to Pakistan, as shown in its cultural capital Lahore, right on the border with India. The ancient city has been here for over 4000 years, and has survived many a empire coming and going. While still occasionally hit by insurgents, the city remains lively and well developed.

About the streets project
Few things are more telling about communities than the streets they live on and around. The Streets project aims to document living conditions and the state of communities in places that are only known in the West by the news of their wars, poverty, and other hardships. This project is about showing the daily life that's not commonly featured.
