In this constant pursuit to keep photography alive as an art (as opposed to a commercial exercise alone), Karachi's ace photographers Arif Mahmood and Tapu Javeri launched a book of interesting portraits at the IVSAA today. The book titled 'Dou Rukh' captured many of Pakistan's high profile faces from a vast cross section of fashion, television, humanity and arts.

The portraits were undoubtedly striking, as expected from two of the most experienced names from the field, but it was the event itself that was just as delightful. Warm albeit breezy, the IVSAA courtyard lit up to welcome a diverse gathering of interesting people, including many of whom had been photographed for the book.
