We had written about the paucity and poverty of images and narratives from and about Pakistan. That sad saga continues...
The New York Times features the work of photographer Zackary Canepari, in a slideshow titled The Heart of Punjab.
The picture above bears the caption:
"Students at a seminary school in Dera Ghazi Khan, a gateway both to Taliban controlled areas and the heart of Punjab, police and local residents say. As cooperation between insurgent groups intensifies, places like Dera Ghazi Khan are particularly vulnerable."
Is that all Zackary Canepari saw? Why did he go to Punjab? How would a Punjabi express herself in photo?
