'Ghar Se Nikalte Hi, Kuch Door Chalte Hi, Raste Main Hai Uska Ghar', Nade Ali's response piece to Sthira Bhattacharya's poem A Day Stretched Like A Blanket, is an ongoing photo series that he's undertaking in Lahore.
"From the very first day at school, the memory of running away from it and finding a way back to my home still exists. The very act of constant running evokes a feeling of displacement and belonging to an axis that is parallel to the one I exist in. This attempt, to walk into the city and map it with a camera is a continuous act of progression, a repeated exercise which is the result of my constant failure to witness and conceive in the digital format. Wandering in the city like an angry dog is a quest and a siege all at once. I seek the self and other at the same time. The city never sleeps with the intervals of hope and despair, it changes form and faces all along on the same ground. It is a home to my homeless eyes."
