Although she was only a college freshman in 2009 when she first picked up a film camera, New York City-based 22-year old photographer Aysha Banos already has more than a decade of experience with documenting using cameras starting from age five.
A Canon AE-1 owned by her late grandfather was the first still film camera that Aysha had ever shot with. At five years old, though, her very first camera was a VHS video camera, and throughout her life she has used various other video and disposable cameras. With her first cell phone camera, she delved further into photography. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Photography from the School of Visual Arts in New York.
While working as an intern for an LA-based fashion photographer, Aysha became fascinated with fashion photography. In an interview with _I Still Shoot Film_, she revealed that she “made an oath to only shoot film” in honor of her grandfather, who passed away a couple of years ago. “I love its accuracy and grain, the lack of detail yet elaborate enough for a beautiful focused image,” she said. Lastly, one important thing that Aysha had learned from film photography is “the virtue of patience.”

In the last decade she has spent in the USA, Maliha has stayed at six different cities in five different states. Currently, Maliha is based in Denver, Colorado, and "Transient Living," a new series in the Lomography magazine, documents her experiences and the ways that she has come to call this city her home.</i>
