Sarker Protick is a visual artist from Bangladesh. Protick makes work that explores the materiality of time and disappearance. His portraits, landscapes and photographic series engage philosophically with the specificities of personal and national histories. Incorporating detail observations and subtle gestures the works enter into personal spaces, often minimal and atmospheric.

He is the recipient of Joop Swart Masterclass, Magnum Foundation Fund, World Press Photo award, Australian Photobook of the Year grand prize. His work has been shown in museums, galleries and festivals including, Chobi Mela, Art Dubai, Paris Photo, Hamburg Triennial, 4A, Singapore Art Week, Dhaka Art Summit, Latvian Contemporary Museum of Photography, Noor der licht and more.
Protick is represented by East Wing Gallery. He is a lecturer at Pathshala-South Asian Media Institute and curator at Chobi Mela International Festival of Photography.
