Artist Statement: “THE MEETING POINT”
“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it”. Rumi ‘The Meeting Point’ expresses my spiritual explorations and learnings over the years. Photographed during and before the pandemic, this series of photographs is evocative of the times we have been living in. The lattice structure is symbolic of the filters we use in the age of social media. While we are caught up in portrayals, our ultimate spiritual freedom is also bound to come through the crutches we use to stay in the material world. Sometimes, they become symbols of the inevitable change we are meant to go through, when we are done with it all…
The lattice structure also symbolises my attempt to filter the fear within and without, allowing light to travel through the core of our being. As Rumi puts it …… “The wound is (indeed) the place from where the light enters”.
The other photographs in the series also come from a deep spiritual space. They look mundane on the surface but capturing these on my lens was a meditative experience by itself.
A man at the mosque performing the Wuzu (cleansing ritual before offering a prayer) is an image that addresses the present and the future, holding time in a delicate balance, creating a meeting point between what is and what is to be. The birds dancing around the water is a moment of discovering unbridled joy in performing a routine task that holds the mundane and extraordinary all at one go! When I photographed the two boys jumping in the river, it was a reminder of the ultimate taste of freedom from all fears and limitations.
For me, Meeting Point is where the opposites unite and merge in a way that the darkness gives way to light, fear to hope and movement to stillness. What seems to us as polarities are actually two sides of the same coin, one often merging into the other and one urging the other to transcend beyond the known into the vast and undiscovered unknown.

Curatorial Essay by Sandeep Biswas

The exhibition – ” The Meeting Point ” is a multi-dimensional convergence of memories, duality, reality, and moments of simple pleasures expressed through the lens of Hasnain Soomar. Hasnain who finds himself inspired by Raghu Rai’s coffee table books rediscovers India from his highly personal and individualistic approach.He envisions mystical beauty and brings us these evocative images that resonate with the true essence of our diverse beliefs along with the human coexistence of love and compassion.A curious explorer of time and space, he travels often to a few ashrams, ghats, mosques, and Mughal monuments, in search of a connection between the human spirit and inner peace.The photographer seems to inconspicuously gaze into the world of extraordinary symbolism with help of scripted walls, Hindu and Islamic architecture, many facets of light and pattern sometimes juxtaposing these with a hint of human existence, while he continues to willingly remain a silent distant observer.The images which are created during the recent pandemic, take us through the time when people suddenly realized the importance of personal spaces and solitude. As we investigate the series of images, at times one might get the feeling of discomforting isolation and a human disconnect. At the same time contrary to that, one can also perceive them from a freshly positive perspective of a new era of solace, a higher optimism, spirituality, hope, humanity, peace, wellness, and most importantly inner and personal happiness. This duality is highly intriguing and leaves the viewer questioning.Hasnain Soomar’s engagement with his creative process is based on his deep-rooted philosophical insights which are expressed through his poetic sensibility and infinite possibilities within his idealistic vision as an image-maker and storyteller.

About Hasnain Soomar
Hasnain Soomar is an Indian photographer who studied at the Chelsea College of Art and Design, London. He has worked on feature films and fashion photography. Hasnain also delves into teaching photography in his free time. He has taught children with special needs, children from lower income households and crafts people of India.

His inspiration is in simply walking in historic places, crowded streets, open spaces and being open to the possibility of finding a photograph anywhere. The uncertainty of things, people, and situations walking into his frame, and the challenge to make it all work as a photograph is what he thrives on.

Nothing in this world is as precious as the talent we have and possessing a spirit of passion and determination to work upon it. Not many people have the patience and required effort to achieve the ultimate goal they have always dreamed of. Many people are quitters and the ones who strive to work on their passion can achieve the luxurious side of life.

Meet Kiana Kanika, an exceptional singer, and actor admired by many for her knowledge and talent in whatever she does. She spent the early years of her life chasing after her passion for singing. She loved singing since she was a child and throughout the years, she discovered her love for singing only grew deeper with time.

As a child, she used to fantasize about a life where she is performing live and people are cheering endlessly. She knew she had the talent to work for her dream and then decided to experience everything in a rather professional way and started taking singing lessons, discovered the elegance of different genres, and started listening to singers across different genres.

As she grew up, Kiana started listening to songs from other genres and languages and was highly interested in and influenced by many artists, her favorite being Miley Cyrus. Kiana always wanted to do live singing. As her love for music became more refined and dense, she decided to pursue it in a rather professional manner.

As an amateur, she began performing live at corporate events and various live shows. Kiana made her debut as an actor in Dev Raaz Sagar’s song ‘Tu Chand Hai Mera’. She has recently collaborated with talented artists in industry for her debut EP, for which she has not disclosed the name yet but will probably release further details by the end of summer this year.

For the upcoming EP, Kiana have made 4 songs. The music for the EP are produced by music producer and sung by Kiana. A heart-touching depiction of different real-life scenarios, the duo is hopeful that the audience will give a lot of love and support to them.

As she decided to pursue singing as a career option, she surely came across many difficulties, including the uncertainties she had to face initially. Her determination and passion for singing and acting brought her this far in life and she is thankful for every decision she made as she was in the process of building the foundation of her career.

From being an amateur to a singer who is admired by many people, Kiana Kanika has always shown a positive approach to everything and has maintained a learning attitude ever since she decided to follow her passion.
