After working in television and film, Amaar spent a considerable amount of time honing a humanistic approach to photography. His long term series on mysticism, made him focus on exploring cultural wisdom,  that weaved through various communities he lived with and photographed intermittently for a period of 12 years.

Amaar has assisted Michael O Neill a Vanity Fair photographer, who connects back to the lineage of Richard Avedon through Hiro (Yasuhiro Wakabayashi).

Amaar has photographed actors like Adrian Brody, Owen Wilson, Bill Murray, Natalie Portman and the cult director Wes Anderson.

His work has been published in the New York Times, South China Morning Post, The Guardian’s Club UK magazine, etc.
