MY NAME IS MUNTAKA CHASANT AND I’M, AMONG MANY OTHER THINGS, AN ENTREPRENEUR AND A SOCIAL DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHER.
My work focuses on social realism, risky livelihoods, and emerging challenges.
For Muntaka.com, I explore the theme of urban suffering and intervene where necessary. If you look closely, you’ll notice that all the photographs on this website are relevant to the human experience.
Having spent a great deal of my young adult life wandering through some of the world’s most extreme places, I’m now dedicating the rest of my youthful energy to capturing contemporary urban realities, digging deeper into the trenches of urban struggle, and collecting firsthand stories of people on the front line.
To me, inhospitable urban spaces are filled with inviting stories and subjects. Dr. Rieux’s response to Tarrou in The Plague sums up how I feel about my subject.
I feel more fellowship with the defeated than with saints.ALBERT CAMUS, THE PLAGUE
