    The Artisans of Kashmir

    Qamoos Bukhari


    About the Book

    <p>INTRIGUED by the name ‘Kanihama’, which he saw on a road sign driving to Gulmarg, at the age of ten, Qamoos Bukhari was first drawn to this extraordinary village where Kani shawl weavers have lived and worked for centuries. He has spent more than three years documenting and photographing their lives. From here his interest in the artisans of Kashmir took root.<br /> The black and white images narrate a quiet tale of art forms that endure with silence, respect, and a shared commitment to a common heritage. Qamoos spent long hours with the men and women seen across these pages, watching them work, listening to their stories. He focused on the men and women rather than on the product. His images are metaphors of lives lived and dreams fulfilled.f</p>
