Sarker Protick is an artist from Dhaka, Bangladesh, primarily working with the medium of light and sound. He graduated from Pathshala South Asian Media Institute and currently teaches at the same institution. He is a member at VII Photo Agency.

Protick’s works are grounded around the ideas of time and space. Hovering between corporeal and meta-physical, his use of light as protagonist creates a truth that is more emotional than factual. It is document only to a suspended reality, where time is perpetually slowed; and we are not just looking, but seeing. Whether working with family, environment or history, Protick’s work consistently deals with Time and how it transforms matter and life.

In 2014, he was named in British Journal Of Photography’s annual ‘Ones to Watch’. The same year, Protick was selected for the Joop Swart Masterclass. In 2015, he went on to win a World Press Photo award for his story ‘What Remains’ and was listed in PDN’s 30 emerging photographers of the year. Recently winner of Australian Photobook Award’s grand prize for his debut book, his works have been featured in numerous exhibitions, including Latvian Contemporary Museum of Photography, Chobi Mela International Photography Festival, Dhaka Art Summit, Art Dubai, Paris Photo and Noorderlicht.
