"One should not only photograph things for what they are, but for what else they are."
– Minor White
My name is Cameran Ashraf. I enjoy photography as a medium through which I "grow down" into the soul in my life. I am self-taught.
I use primarily film. A large amount of my photography is through pinhole film cameras, where I have no viewfinder and must follow my intuition in creating a photograph. It is a wonderful and rich experience.
My initial foray into photography was focused on solar astrophotography, and I named my site Heliographic after an early device used to photograph the sun. My work has broadened beyond our beautiful star, and I am happy to share it with you.
You can learn more about my professional background in human rights, freedom of expression, and technology at my personal site.
Thank you for visiting. Please enjoy my photography.
