Ghulam Abbas is 2 ft 4 inch circus performer. Born in a family of average heights he settled for a circus life. "Life of a dwarf is to entertain by doing silly acts. We are defined by our oddity. Even when I am not dressed like a goofy character, people treat me like one." #circus #life #perfotmer #artist #clown #entertainment #love #everydaypakistan #everydayeverywhere #photojournalism #photostory #photography #pakistan

Iftikhar is the circus clown. “We are a team of little people who make the audience laugh. There are limited options for us in the real world. I want to be married and have a family but then hardly any of us gets that."

Chai and camaraderie at the construction site:

Mohammad Aziz, 60, belongs to Sadiqabad. He drives his tractor transporting steel bars from the storage yard to the construction site. As the wind blows the flag posted on the roof, he says, “I love our national flag and I fixed it on my tractor on the 14th of August.”

This is a story I did a few years ago about the men who built the metro bus project in the twin cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad.
February 2015 (pakistan archives)
The metro bus project employed hundreds of workers.These men came to Islamabad from all over Pakistan and many had never seen the capital before. Miles from their hometowns, as they worked and lived together through the hard labour and long hours, there was a real sense of community in them. They sweat together, ate together and shared light moments of life over numerous cups of tea.
