Depth of Field: The Aga Khan Beyond the Lens

“The pictures have all been very carefully chosen, I tried to find pictures that draw the viewer into the picture, that try to tell a story or make the viewer themselves imagine a story.”  Gary Otte (Source: the.Ismaili)

Photographer Gary Otte has taken many thousands of photos of Mawlana Hazar Imam’s visits to his Jamats, his meetings with world leaders, and AKDN projects across the world. In this exclusive interview, Mr. Otte describes his motivation to compile a visual record of Hazar Imam’s life and work, centered around photos taken by him and other photographers over the course of eight decades. The book, entitled Depth of Field, is available to pre-order now from The Ismaili Shop.
