Biography

Lali Khalid is a visual artist living in Ithaca, NY. She holds a B.F.A. in printmaking from the National College of Arts in Lahore (2003) and an M.F.A. in Photography from Pratt Institute (2009) where she was a Fulbright Scholar. Lali was born in Pakistan and immigrated to U.S. in 2011. Khalid uses her work as a tool to explore themes of diaspora, identity, family, and home in her own life and the lives of people she photographs. Her images depict and document cultural and private conflicts, as well as emotive effects of natural light, through quiet, narrative allusions. She has shown her work in many galleries throughout Europe, Pakistan, and the US. Khalid is currently an Assistant Professor of Photography at Ithaca College.
