Through her travels in Iran, Japan, Turkey, Slovenia and her home country of Australia, Melbourne photographer Sarah Pannell has developed a curious way of documenting different cultures through her lens.
With a focus on the relationships between people and their surrounds, Pannell is able to photograph a different, more intimate side of the places that she visits. Her work centers on the way that landscapes have been altered culturally and historically — capturing moments and interactions in these foreign and familiar places that make them unique. From the Mondrian-esque door in the mountains of Turkey to golden hour in a suburban Australian street, Pannell’s images convey her curiosity and also hint at her understanding of the communities that she frames with her lens.
