Half-truths
Naveen Naqvi and Ali Sultan
Faraar Gallery
July 19 - August 9, 2017
Opening reception: Wednesday, July 19, 5-8 pm

"The modern way of seeing is to see in fragments. It is felt that reality is essentially unlimited, and knowledge is open-ended. It follows that all boundaries, all unifying ideas have to be misleading, demagogic; at best, provisional; almost always, in the long run, untrue. To see reality in the light of certain unifying ideas has the undeniable advantage of giving shape and form to our experience. But it also - so the modern way of seeing instructs us - denies the infinite variety and complexity of the real. Thereby it represses our energy, indeed our right, to remake what we wish to remake - our society, ourselves. What is liberating, we are told, is to notice more and more. ...
... There is no final photograph.”

From Susan Sontag's essay, Photography: A Little Summa in “At The Same Time: Essays and Speeches” (London: Hamish Hamilton, 2007)

Naveen Naqvi is a fine art photographer. Her photographic work has been published in print and online, and exhibited in Vancouver, Canada. Prior to this she was a broadcast, print and online journalist, television actor, poet, music show host, and model. 

Artist’s Statement:
"While I do not identify as a landscape photographer, this work was made over the course of 2015 and 2017. It was a time of personal difficulty in which the forests of Vancouver were a great solace. With the exception of two pictures, all images are made on 35mm and 120mm film.

I am interested in issues of belonging, desire, loss and impermanence. (I often think of how ‘belonging’ holds within it ‘longing’.) As we, the world, and we in the world are in a constant state of hurtling “forward," my photographs and writing come from a need to understand what it means to be in this time."


Ali Sultan is a self-taught painter and photographer who lives and works in Lahore. He gets lost in windows, hides in stairways, hangs in curtains and sleeps in a hat.
