About Simran Kaur:
Simran Kaur is a surrealist still life and creative portrait photographer and artist currently based in London. She is Punjabi and she was born and raised in Italy
Simran's main objective is to make the viewer's dreams come true by creating intriguing setups, but she does also creates mental health and environmental awareness with her experimental photography. At the same time, she also creates dreamlike abstract visuals to make the viewer explore another reality.
Simran Kaur gets inspired by people's dreams and visions, but her childhood memories also inspire her to create various projects. To keep her childhood memories alive she started doodling digital and traditional illustrations which helps her to understand how she feels about those foggy memories of her childhood.
SK: "Concealed Away" is a photography project which explores the idea of being trapped away in someone's dream. Simran Kaur did question herself what would happen if we get concealed away in a dream not belonging to us. This surreal idea came up in her mind because she thought about how sometimes the memories we have are fogged and they feel like they are not our memories and this could also happen to us. Simran did question herself specifically this " I wake up every morning and I remember only a piece of my dreams but was that dream truly mine? Does it belong to me or am I simply concealed away in someone's dream?".
