This isn’t the case with Nerjis Asif Shakir, she is the grand daughter of Firoze Shakir, A prolific street photographer himself. Nerjis watching her grand father started clicking pictures as young as 18 months old. She hasn’t stopped since. and had her work recently on display at the “Art With Impact” art show and fundraiser in San Francisco.
