photograph by me lol.

a bio that no one asked for:

At 21, Mariam discovered that she has Aphantasia, which means that she can’t visualize anything in her head. Seriously, nothing. Her obsession with photography started to make a lot more sense: she’s overcompensating. Just kidding…not only does she get to show the world her perspective on life, she gets to show herself too.

When Mariam isn’t capturing landscapes, cultures, and people around the world, she’s exploring the various neighborhoods in NYC with a film camera always in tow. She finds herself drawn to facets of everyday life that are mostly overlooked: shadows, reflections, walls.

Mariam studied electrical engineering at Pitt and worked as an Energy Engineer before switching to a marketing & communications role for an MTA mega project. These jobs have¬†allowed her to photograph industrial and construction sites all over the 5 boroughs of NYC – things that most people don’t get to see.
