About

Ivan Sigal is an American photographer, writer, and media producer, known for his documentary explorations of societies undergoing conflict or political transition. Displayed on the RIC’s Salah J. Bachir New Media Wall, Sigal’s multi-channel installation KCR explores the Karachi Circular Railway, a now-defunct commuter train that once connected the disparate neighbourhoods of Pakistan’s largest metropolis. Walking its entire length, he made digital stills and video, written observations, audio recordings, and aerial drone footage. His complex array of impressions, at odds with standard media narratives of the city’s historical turmoil, contrasts the railway’s derelict structures and disordered surroundings against the enduring tenacity of Karachi’s residents.

Ivan Sigal created KCR while a fellow at Harvard University’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society, with funding support from the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting.
