Sapna Khan takes part in Photography Now, a group exhibition of international artists from September 15 to 25, 2016 at The Brick Lane Gallery – 216 Brick Lane, E1 6SA, London. She presents two of her series.
The Men of the Long Haul, is a series of portraits of Pakistani truck drivers. Drivers often travel distances of thousands of miles from home, braving treacherous trails for days, weeks or even months on end. To cope with their solitude on the road, they find solace in beautifying their trucks, taking great pride in having the colours, designs, and decorations, serve as a reminder of home.
From the Land of the Lost River, is a series of portraits taken in Cholisthan (Pakistan), the land of the lost river, Sarasvati.
Influenced by literature and the cinema, Sapna Khan‘s work focuses on narratives and storytelling, an approach she utilizes in the realms of advertising, photojournalistic, and editorial photography.
A journalism graduate of the University of Westminster (UK), Sapna went to obtain a postgraduate diploma in photography from Spéos Paris in 2014. She is based in Lahore, Pakistan.
