is the subject something that is intolerable to you/society etc?
or the more classic meaning of the word intolerance of one group vs another group?

well ,they used intolerance in wide sense. it could be intolerance to society, or intolerance by the society on specific issue or something

i can only assume that the subject would be highly personal...and local. I cannot presume to know about your locale as I have never been to Pakistan, but if it was me, I would look for something more universal...hate, distrust, dishonor of another person, place or symbol seems transcultural

but equally you could take this in political directions according to your own tastes.

or you could take a slightly lighter view of the issue and go for things like: "lactose intolerance"

though if you google "museum of tolerance" you might get some ideas

Then there is "lactose intolerance" but I'm not sure you want to photograph that.


I am serious....and don't call me Shirley.
Canon 7D and a bunch of other stuff

Look at the work of W.Eugene Smith and the photo essay detailing with the effects of Minamata disease, which was caused by a Chisso factory discharging heavy metals into water sources around Minamata, Japan and also Robert Frank especially the book" The Americans"

You could shoot how maybe a society is intolerant of woman or others that have a different religion from the majority and the way that majority is intolerant of the minority. The most difficult part of this is for your work to not become exploitive. Thats why I think its important to first see how those that have done it very well have approached it. Try not to take the obvious road.
