The Cambridge Karachi Portrait – Jaine selected a city to juxtapose with Cambridge that many said had very little in common. Karachi in Pakistan – despite being a thriving economic hub and the 10th biggest city in the world – is often presented to the world as a place full of one of terrorists, rife with fundamentalism and lawlessness.  Jaine’s ambition was to show commonalities and connections between these two apparently different cities. The process of generating a portrait of the two places was complex and involved inviting a host of volunteer participants, mainly from the business community. Film, story-telling and photography was used and the outputs include a film (Another Face), a book of photographs and this website. However the experience has also generated relationships and ongoing dialogue – and this site also promotes business and other exchanges between the two cities (see the Cambridge Karachi Connections page for more).
