Maroof Umar

Maroof Umar aka Maroof Culmen, is a consummate storyteller, visually documenting the heritage, the history, and the pulse of cities, primarily the city of Nawabs – Lucknow, India. His stunning visual narratives beautifully capture the essence of the subject, whether historic or the mundane. He covers heritage monuments and their stories, and also the cultural nuances, traditions, crafts, and local food stories. For me, Maroof’s work is a beautiful reminder of the many summers I spent at my maternal grandparents’ home in the steeped-in-culture city of Lucknow. View more of Maroof’s inspiring work here.
