From high fashion to bridal wear, Culture Trip selects the most dynamic contemporary Pakistani photographers working today.

Ashna Khan

Based in Lahore, Ashna Khan is certainly one to watch. The photographer specialises in dramatic poses of models and the striking juxtapositions of individuals and their backgrounds. His keen eye allows for the intricate designs of clothes to take the spotlight, often marrying the pieces with natural surroundings, to great effect. Throughout, a sense of movement is key.

Shahroz Hyder

Although he photographs a range of subjects, what sets photographer Shahroz Hyder apart is his approach to wedding photography and bridal wear. Hyder’s lens focusses on the candid moments of a wedding, and on intricate details of the clothes. His unique lens ensures that photographs feel natural and spontaneous instead of stylised and kitsch. Alongside brides and grooms, Hyder also uses street photography to convey a powerful sense of place, and most recently has shot the Saira Shakira‘s Eid campaign.
