About

It all began in my late teens with my father’s Mamiya 35mm SLR camera. Back then, learning photography and becoming a photographer in the traditional sense wasn’t my objective. What truly fascinated me was the power of capturing and preserving moments, allowing me to revisit them later.

As time passed I realized that photography is not just about capturing images; it’s a fascinating journey of exploration and observation that connects us with surrounding realities. It’s the art of seeing, exploring, and imagining the world through a lens—a belief in images’ power to stimulate thoughts and evoke emotions. Each captured moment in time tells a story, allowing the viewer to become immersed in the visual narrative commonly known as storytelling.

Travel Photography by Asif Naqvi

It is all about seeing, observing, and making visual notes.

As I spent more time with my camera, I discovered it to be more than just a device—it became an extension of my creativity, a tool that allowed me to express myself in profound ways. Having ventured into the realm of imagination, when life enabled me to step into the real world, I noticed and discovered a newfound appreciation for nature. Vast landscapes, delicate flora, and fascinating fauna inspired me to see the world anew.

When nature becomes overwhelming, I make my way back to human civilization. I wander through diverse cultures and untrodden paths, finding inspiration in the essence of each place and its people. Travel photography, for me, is a way to connect with the soul of a destination.

Constantly seeking fresh perspectives, I try to push boundaries to capture elusive moments that resonate deeply with the audience. Aksgar is not just an expression of my vision, but an invitation to see the world from a different angle, to find beauty in the seemingly mundane, and to appreciate the manners in which we exist.

With boundless enthusiasm in one hand and a camera in the other,
