Sarah Pannell is an Australian documentary photographer based in Melbourne whose work explores landscape, culture and community both in her native Australia and further afield. Sarah’s eye captures the ever-evolving relationships between people and their surroundings, retracing the way in which culture becomes embedded in place through modern life and tradition. Her work observes how a landscape is marked by both history and accelerated modernisation, capturing the tension between these different influences and the result when past and present collide.

Sarah is available for assignments in Australia and abroad.
