Born in 1964, one of the things Kesto M Haleem is well known for is his passion for Maldivian history. From what started as holding on to what his late father left behind, he has found the historian in him he didn’t know he had. Growing up with a father who was a collector of historical mementos, Kesto M Haleem was constantly enveloped with the love for tradition and culture. He is now an avid photographer and researcher on Maldivian history and holds a valuable photo archive of precious moments from our past. The historian that he is, preserving it for our coming children, he himself is painting his path in the Maldivian historical canvas.
