Lewis Khan graduated from UWE’s BA programme in 2014. The result of his final year was a short film titled Georgetown, which quickly gained wide recognition, most notably being selected for The Photographers Gallery’s ‘Fresh Faced and Wild Eyed’, and winning 1st Prize at Shuffle Film Festival.
Since then Lewis has continued to build a distinctive and sensitive approach to photography, completing a mix of long-term personal projects alongside extensive commissioned work. He is now working full-time freelance in London, and his book ‘Theatre’, produced over 4 years and across 2 hospitals as part of a residency, will be published in 2020 by Lost Light Recordings.
In an interview with Loupe Magazine, Lewis said that “UWE is all about developing a personal style and body of work. Developing the artist as the engine, the ‘why’ in the process of creating.
When I started, I didn’t have a clear idea of what kind of practitioner I wanted to be, and so the whole process was quite experimental. I think it’s really important that uni is a space where you can do that, without any pressure to have it all figured out from the get go.”
