MUNTAKA CHASANT HERE. I’M — AMONG MANY OTHER THINGS —AN ENTREPRENEUR AND A MULTIPLE INTERNATIONAL AWARDS WINNING 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 — as a human being in the discharge of my duty to society.


Urban front lines are increasingly becoming spaces where grinding poverty and human suffering manifest most severely.

And for me, these urban spaces are filled with inviting stories and subjects.

Having spent a great deal of my young adult life wandering through some of the world’s most extreme places, I’m dedicating the rest of my youth at the urban front line. To capture contemporary urban realities, dig deeper into the trenches of urban struggle, and collects firsthand stories of people on the front lines.

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.
