Kim Jansen Denmark Shot By Marziya Shakir 4 Year Old

Only Photography Breaks Down Borders and Barbed Fences

Now you must be wondering why Kim is looking sideways at a wall while Marziya Shakir 4 year old took this shot on the Nikon D 80.. on the wall hangs pictures of my parents the Shakirs and pictures of my wifes parents the Qazilbash.. Kim was telling them folks you have both done a good job ..

Viola is porcelain beauty , and I have requested her I would like t shoot her in the Ninja Hijab only her eyes that are like scintillating orbs full of surprise , and her face is what poems are made of ..and Kim Jansen is lucky to have this uncut gem on the ring of his unwed finger .

Yesterday we took a trip to Park Site Vikhroli to meet Ma Madhurima and her flock of hijras but we could not meet them as they are in Delhi we instead talked to Mr Santosh Shetty social activist her adopted son on phone and he called us over at the Marriott Juhu , and someone robbed my phone just outside the Marriott .. that hit me hard as it was a BB and all my unsaved numbers gone..

We had some good time with Mr Santosh Shetty when he arrived in time at the Marriot..

Photography Is Childs Play.. Provided You Are Born With It

This shot was bought to life by Marziya Shakir 4 year old who studies in Junior KG at Bandra has an American New Yorker for her Guru .. Dr Glenn Losack MD..

Marziya Shakir will turn 4 on 24 November and shoots on the Nikon D 80..

She has a Nikon D 3100 gifted to her from an uncle in Dubai ..but her aunt is using it for a assignment , her aunt is photographer and gifted copywriter.

All members in my house including 4 month Nerjis Asif Shakir can use the camera , Nerjis Asif Shakir uses a miniature toy camera ..

Photography has a purpose to share our worlds our pains our surroundings .. photography is not mere snapshots it is capturing the fleeting soul of romance and humanity.

Marziya Shakir shoots garbage beggars hijras and she shoots people too..

She shoots Church interiors Hindu feasts , but likes to shoot zanjir matam of the kids during Moharam..

She shoots the Muslim Shia feasts dressed in a hijab..

Most of the beggars of Bandra are known to Marziya Shakir she gives them their share from her pocket money .Marziya likes Barbie dolls..

Three Street Photographers Shot By Marziya Shakir 4 Year Old

Kim and Viola are in Mumbai shooting the hijras of Mumbai, they shot the Hijras of Guru Gauri Ma at Malvani Madh Islands , they genuinely want to document the hijra pain of survival , the hijra struggle to keep body and battered soul alive.

I met Kim through Flickr he said he has been studying my Flickr hijra posts since two years and has been following my tryst with the captive soul of the hijra.

Kim Hansen is a journalist and Kim sold his apartment his car to make this trip a dream into a reality..he and Viola are street photographers from Denmark and very human down to earth , they found a poor stray kitten at Andaman Islands that would have been dead as it was in a pitiable state , they bought it to Mumbai looked after it in their rented apartment and are now waiting to give this Chubby feline called Butcher to any good cat lover ..

So life has strange moments and like cats sometimes I think we too have 9 lives .. Kim and Viola had come home when my grand children were in Lucknow , so yesterday wife who is going for a pilgrimage invited them home for lunch, and Marziya was crazily waiting for them , Marziya shook hands with them watched Viola take out her camera than quietly walked up to the chair picked up my camera and shot Viola and than Kim..

This was a later shot of us three by Marziya Shakir on the Nikon D 80..
