Lewis Kahn

Lewis Khan b.1990 is a photographic artist from London, working with stills and moving image. His portrait based work is a study of emotion, relationships, and identity. Khan’s graduation piece from UWE, Bristol – ‘Georgetown’ (11min , 20sec) was picked up and exhibited widely, notably at The Photographers Gallery as part of Fresh Faced + Wild Eyed, it was also awarded 1st Prize at Shuffle Film Festival by Director Danny Boyle. Following that Khan’s practice has taken him further afield, shooting projects commercially and personally in countries across Europe and The Americas. At the same time as this Khan has undertaken an Artist Residency spanning 4 years across two general London hospitals; The Chelsea & Westminster and the West Middlesex. The resulting project ‘Theatre’ offers a complex web of associations based on the universal human qualities of strength & fragility. The project is situated in the context of the contemporary landscape of UK healthcare; the potential privatisation of the NHS, and the allegorical connection between the immediate themes explored in the project and the unfolding wider political situation.
