ISLAMABAD, (Pakistan Point News - APP -5th Sep,2016) : Nomad has organized a show presented by American portrait photographer Tom Norris here at Nomad art Gallery. In the show Tom Norris has shared some of the stories of how these images came to be and what he has learned through his enlightening experiences in Pakistan, Founder Director Nageen Hyat told APP. Tom Norris is an American portrait photographer with a heart for humanity and building relationships.
He has a BFA from Old Dominion University located in Virginia. After moving to Phoenix,Arizona two years ago, he was inspired by the new surroundings and faces to begin a portrait series. The idea for Show Humanity started when talking with his good friend, Danish Rahi, and hearing how the image of Americans overseas is drastically different from the reality of the majority. In this portrait series, he has attempted to show a cross section of everyday Americans, all photographed on location as he met them.
Part 2 of this project will require photographing Pakistani people while he is visiting. He hopes to be able to gather enough images to put on a show in the U.S. to change American's view of the Pakistani people, thereby showing humanity to itself so that we may realize that we are all human and need to respect each other as such. A large number of art and nature lovers visited the exhibition.
