Nabeelah Hafeez brings her experience of growing up in the Pakistani community in Bradford to Kala Sangam, through images and words captured by Nabeelah and her late father the Poet Mohammed Hafeez Johar.
Through my Father’s Lens brings together poetry from both father and daughter in both English and Urdu. These words will be accompanied by photographs of Bradford from the 70s, 80s and 90s taken by Hafeez Johar, and images of Bradford captured by Nabeelah using that same treasured camera.
In words and images Through my Father’s Lens aims to provide an insight into the lives of the Pakistani community in the city, showing migration as a journey of identity through the experience of second and third generation migrants.
‘Memories of my homeland. These are burnt into my heart.
But now this city is also in my blood.’
Extract from Home by Mohammad Hafeez Johar
