PORTRAITS IN PAKISTAN

A photographer from the United Arab Emirates travelled to Pakistan where he captured the lives of local people in a series of expressive portraits. Sohail Karmani, 48, spent two weeks in Sahiwal, a city in the province of Punjab, where more than 60 per cent of the population live on as little as £1.30 a day. Sohail, a writing professor at New York University Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, hopes his portraits will provide a snapshot of how people are coping in a world of poverty. He says: "I hope my photos raise some awareness by putting a human face on the everyday struggles many Pakistanis face.
