Jim Bowie is a photographer hobbyst, who has made it his mission to capture the development of the Aga Khan Museum, the Ismaili Centre and their Park by taking a photograph every day. This has provided Simerg with a splendid opportunity to monitor its progress in reaching its ‘developmental milestones’ over the coming months.
By providing this treasure trove of photographs, we hope that your heart and mind will beam to as much a degree as Jim’s does; for him, change is an inevitable process and he does not take it for granted. He is engrossed daily in what he is observing.
Just as each one of us is dedicated and committed to our own personal endeavours in life, the engineers, the architects and the site personnel are committed to seeing this project beautifully completed. The viewer, hopefully, will appreciate a sense of what happens at a dedicated construction site.
