Inspiration Behind Zamana
Drawing from a poignant piece of history, this photoshoot weaves the rich tapestry of the Sikh spirit with an aesthetic nod to the past. Imagine a Sikh gentleman from the 1950s or 60s: an influential figure embodying resilience, elegance, and tradition amidst change. As Sikhs rose in fields like politics, academia, and industry, our character represents a progressive thinker blending traditional values with new-age aspirations.

Elements of the Era
The vintage car symbolizes affluence and progress, reflecting the economic strides of that time. The double-breasted suit showcases Western influences, mirroring global fashion trends that cosmopolitan Sikhs embraced while maintaining their distinct identity through the turban. The umbrella is more than a shelter; it’s a metaphorical shield, carrying the weight of history and the responsibility to uphold a legacy.
