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 studies as an undergraduate in International Studies focussed on 20th century Middle Eastern politics and history which in turn, has lead to her interest in the region, most recently in Iran. Sarah’s forthcoming solo work exploring the importance of hospitality in Iranian society as well as Iran’s unique urban and natural landscape will be released as a photo-book published by Perimeter Editions and Hillvale Photo, in early 2019. Sarah will also hold her first solo exhibition in 3 years.
As the recipient of the British Journal of Photography’s 2017 Send Anywhere Award, Sarah travelled to Egypt in early 2018 to document the visible signs of decline in the country’s tourism industry and produced an editorial for The British Journal of Photography.
