Event description

Description

When the late Bradford based poet Mohammad Hafeez Johar passed away one of his prized possessions – a pentax camera – was gifted to his daughter Nabeelah Hafeez, a promising poet in her own right.

Through my Father’s Lens brings together poetry from both father and daughter in both English and Urdu. These words will be accompanied by photographs of Bradford from the 70s, 80s and 90s taken by Hafeez Johar, and images of Bradford captured by Nabeelah using that same treasured camera.

In words and images Through my Father’s Lens aims to provide an insight into the lives of the Pakistani community in the city, showing migration as a journey of identity through the experience of second and third generation migrants.

‘Memories of my homeland. These are burnt into my heart.
But now this city is also in my blood.’
Extract from Home by Mohammad Hafeez Johar
