COME  CLOSER

This photobook documents the past seven years of my life. Seven being my life path number, a significant number to me, this book captures some of the most significant moments in my life. From portraits and photographs of the house keeper of Tennessee Williams' house and his notoriously known pool he used to dive in naked, in a hot New Orleans Sun, to landscapes of Baltimore Streets where I lived for a short period after leaving my biological mother's home. With text excerpts from my memoir I am continuing to write, these images tell the story of rape, race, gender, class and cultural roots of a South Asian/Arab Queer & Trans person navigating their life in hometown NYC. These are the pieces that are left behind.
