This was the first time I visited slums to take photos in Sialkot. Every kid that I met was friendly, and wanted to be photographed. I always try to take candid moments, but as soon as kids come in front of camera, their expressions change. Even in posed photos, kids at slums, they tell a story, which depicts reality.
