Hyderabad-based photographer Nishat Fatima is drawn to everyday objects and their innate beauty. For this photo essay, she focuses on overlooked surfaces and commonplace, ubiquitous products reducing everything to its essential line and curve. Following in the footsteps of modernists like Edward Weston, she looks for the extraordinary in the ordinary.

She isolates each element and works to present it as simply as possible. But the minimalism of straight lines and circles–their geometry– is balanced with the sensuality of red, the color of fire and passion. The result is something that is both familiar and strange.
