Along with the work on display there was an accompanying photography zine, a catalog of his black and white photographs. They are the grainy, gritty and documentative side of the exhibition. The artist talked about the physical challenges in creating these compositions, the sheer weight and force of the crowds surrounding him at these processions, making it next to impossible to control the compositional finality. Yet, these works feel premeditated, their painterly strokes of light and shadow with the emotive quality in each one making them a deeply personal experience. Ali talks about having studied the behavior of his community over the years with patience and compassion. With a desire to capture the emotional frequencies and oddities that make him both an insider and outsider of his own photographic practice. Ali has kept going back to this procession over the years, he has witnessed its rhythm and movements intimately. He has photographed at Nisar Haveli, Pando Street at Krishan Nagar, Mohalla Shiaan and Bab ul Hawaij at Mochi Gate, Rishi Bahwan at 84 Brandreth and Bilo Shah at Taxila Gate.
