Marking my 9/11

My arrival...
Marking my 9/11

9/11/1988 changed my world…

Three of my photography students insisted I spent the last night with them in Pindi, Pakistan. We chatted, ate plenty good food, watched films on VHS and barely slept.

motiroti archive online

motiroti archive covering most of its projects from the last 21 years is now available online.

This archive is by no means exhaustive neither is it accompanied by critical discourse or writings.

And I hope it creates an opportunity for you to be able to see how the narrative of motiroti has evolved and to contribute to ways in how the organisation can continue to develop!
