Photographer Spotlight: Saleem Ahmed

Philadelphia-based photographer Saleem Ahmed seeks out the “silent details that hide in plain sight” with his images. “I am constantly searching for peace and quiet in a world that is often too loud”, he explains.

For Ahmed, photography is a way to record our collective evolution and impermanence: “Nothing lasts forever, and I am drawn to the idea of preserving our histories, cultures, and communities. I use my soft-spoken images and writing to pursue projects relating to my own family, as well as the environments that I live in.”
