Click to preview THE SPIRIT OF LAHORE photo book

The spirit of Lahore is an effort to preserve the fabulous work of the craftsmen, artists and builders during the Mughal reign, even by way of a camera.

Lahore offers a multitude of experiences to all. From wide boulevards to grand buildings, Mughal monuments to British architect, narrow alleys to open gardens, it has a little bit of everything. The photographs in this book takes you into magnificent imperial structures which overwhelm you with their imposing presence. Then there is the walled city with narrow streets and tall havelis. Within these winding lanes are the bazaars, the tombs of saints and mosques like Wazir Khan and Sonheri Masjid, depicting the importance of the intermixing of commerce, industry, religion and residential quarters.
These monuments have survived for centuries and are destined to survive for more, if proper emphasis is put on their preservation.

Ismail, I just finished going thru all the pages, and can easily say that i'm both impressed at the photography, carefully capturing the images and the neglect, and in parallel capturing the beauty of a city that is so near and dear to many hearts. I hope someone higher up in the Government takes notice and initiates the process of improving some of the neglected sites. Overall, a very nice job! Now i know where you've been spending your weekends......and all this time, i was thinking it was on a golf course somewhere:)

The text below the pictures is too small to read. Plus you should keep a consistent size font on all pages. the other thing i noticed was the vertical text in some pages, and horizontal on consistent and pick one.
