From a rustic village Kohat in Pakistan to the modern metropolis Dubai, life has unraveled various nuances that have caught her attention. Inspired with the photography of her husband, Zahoor uddin Khan and her Mentor, Mohammed Arfan Asif, she has been pursuing photography for the past three years with serious interest.
