Abdul Halik Azeez Biography

Abdul Halik Azeez began his career as a strategy consultant, newspaper and citizen journalist thereafter working as an independent researcher focusing on hate speech and critical discourse analysis. His photojournalistic work began as a researcher in which he used social media as a platform to publish his work and narrative. Following his exhibition in 2014 he began to merge his work as researcher and artist using photo reportage to capture images that document the change in contemporary Sri Lanka with a focus on the social and cultural lives of minorities and urban residents residing in slum areas. The work he confronts as a researcher has become a direct influence on his portfolio, documenting the lives of those experiences first-hand effects of development and often those involved in trade with higher vulnerability or risk. Using a critical viewpoint, he explores the environment around him to create works that frame a dialect between the real and conceptual.
