Zorain Finds: Love For Food, Travel And Photography

By Amina Gul

It’s hard to stand out in a crowd these days. Everyone is doing everything and posting it all over the internet. So it’s rare when something gets me to stop and do a double-take; and that something is genuine talent. I am talking about our very own Instagram celebrity, Zorain Iqbal, who has taken the world by storm with his simple yet amazingly captured images of food during his travels.

What we love the most about his photos is how he is helping promote Pakistan as the idyllic food and travel destination it is. You’ll fall in love with the beauty of Pakistan through Zorain’s elegant photography which combining his love for food and travel.

A man of few words, he expresses his aesthetic sense through his photography. In an interview, he revealed that he is not a trained photographer, nor are his pictures taken using a professional camera. Instead, he simply uses his iPhone to take pictures of whatever captures his imagination.
