Overview participating exhibitions
The work of the photographer Sana Khan always has a dreamy quality. In her TREE SERIES we see people in stylized landscapes whose central feature are trees. There is always the suggestion of loneliness and inadequacy. In that sense the images are more psychological portraits, than real situations.
This photograph is a representation of a struggle to achieve life desired. The ladder against the tree signifies the long trailing steps one climbs to try and reach a desired purpose. The cloud symbolizing a dream, an endeavour that must be attained, yet it is too translucent to hold the weight of my aspirations. The dead tree, the sulking man, the translucent cloud, they all denote failed attempts of reaching a desired axis of existence.
Sana Khan (Pakistan, 1987) studied photography at Beaconhouse National University in Lahore and at the University of Westminster, England. She has had a solo show at the Alhamra National Art Gallery in Lahore, en contributed to various group exhibitions in Great Britain and Pakistan.
