Inspired by Brandon Stanton, who started Humans of New York, Khaula Jamil, an independent Freelance Photographer/Photojournalist and CAP started ‘Humans of Karachi’.
Pakistan is one of the most historically rich countries in the world and Karachi one of the fastest growing urban cities in history. Popularly known as the City of Lights, Karachi one of the most diverse places in Asia with over 21 million people, many of whom travelled here from all over the country in search of opportunities. Complex and at times challenging to live in, most Karachiites are resilient survivors with an almost unhealthy passion for their city. These photographs will show you Karachiites in a way some of you may or may not have seen before.
Like The Humans of New York, The Humans of Karachi Project is an effort by CAP to create a photographic census of the city of Karachi as creatively possible.
