Scrap Finality is Dallas-based writer Ali Haider’s debut editorial photography and prose release. The book consists of memoirs and over 50 self-portraits confronting the topics of American-Pakistani identity, fashion, beautification, death and depression.

Scrap Finality is introduced as a cohesive project made from the scrapped photographs and consequent writings of the 24-year old author. The idea of “scraps” takes from the process of abandoning months of work to be revisited when multiple scraps come together. The author’s idea of “scrap finality” manifests when abandoned ideas are cultivated in an ecosystem of other abandoned ideas and merged to take on their own life.
