This vast universe is composed of multiple elements. So too are our lives which are composed of moments; some more important than the others. It are these moments, which take a very small segment of our lives and frame it into the minds and hearts forever. This leads us to reflections and gives birth to experiences from which we and others learn from. Out of the several moments in his life,there is one that stands out the most. After going through a series of setbacks, Asim decided to reinvent and script his future as he took on the biggest challenge of his life, to be at war with himself. He begun a transition of a lifetime that resulted in over a 175 pound weight loss, reversing diabetes, heart and kidney disease. It wasn't easy, but it led him to believe that once you intend something and fuel it with passion, the word possible reveals itself with a new meaning. With the journey, it brought his being into context and allowed him to appreciate every moment in this world with a new lease on life. He wanted to save his new found experiences and let the world know what it was all about, which led him to pursue further, his biggest passion; Photography.
Asim has percieved photography as a channel to capture life one click at a time simply because through photography, it has led him to appreciate and expose every individuals uniqueness, as well as the simple things that surround us, which normally may be overlooked. We often procrastinate and put things off into a false illusion that we'll get to it, but the truth is, no moment in time is ever guaranteed. Hence, his camera has been his tool to break barriers and to accept the "new" him by stepping out of his comfort zone and discover the world that had eluded him. This journey has led him to reveal a lot about his inner self through some negatives, yet at the same time it has allowed him to meet new people. But most importantly, it has taught him that every single soul in this univerve is unique in it's own way and that the biggest gift one can give to another is appreciation, acceptance, and paying it forward.
