Hi there! My name is Maryam and I always forget about #fridayintroductions so here is my #sundayintroduction. I’m a photographer (obvs) because I have a deep emotional connection to memories of childhood, and having boxes full of photos from my life just makes me feel complete. Pulling out a photo and being instantly pulled back to that time period and being able to remember smells and feelings and love...it’s such a treasured thing for me. I want to give that to my daughter, and to be honest I want everyone to have that for themselves and for their kids. I learned photography in a dark room but nowadays I use a mix of digital cameras and film that I send off to a lab. One day I hope to have my own dark room. I miss being in the quiet darkness with the weird smells and watching photographs magically appear in the developer. I don’t miss smelling like a dark room so there’s that 😂
Also? I’m currently obsessed with the show Riverdale, listening to audiobooks (currently listening to #crazyrichasians), searching for the perfect pair of joggers to wear out of the house (any suggestions?), and actually using a tea pot for tea.
What’s making you happy these days?
