Laura Pannack is a British social documentary and portrait photographer.
Since 2008, Laura has received awards for her work and had solo exhibits. Her work has been exhibited in The Houses of Parliament, Somerset House, and the Royal Festival Hall in London and has been used to illustrate articles in magazines such as The Sunday Times, Le Monde, and Time.
Laura's works are often of children and teenagers. She is driven by research led self-initiated projects. In her own words, she does all she can "to understand the lives of those captured, and to present them creatively." Her images aim to suggest the shared ideas and experiences that are entwined in each frame that she shoots. Laura largely shoots with a film camera on her personal projects, allowing her process to be organic rather than being predefined by fixed ideas, thus removing additional pressure on the sitter.
"Laura's remarkable ability to build trust and respect with her subjects allows her to express a gritty vulnerability that is as sincere as it is elusive to capture.' Terry O'Neill
