With a camera as their singular companion, Zaman traveled to Cairo, Mongolia, and beyond. Upon realizing their lens could help them find the power in their own complex identity, the Australian-born creative moved to New York and began working as a photographer.

Zaman’s photography is raw and emotive, effortlessly capturing moments. They are famed for their versatility as a photographer, spanning portraiture, fashion, documentary reportage and still life/environmental image making.
