Laura Panack

Sep 23, 2017 - Juan Stockenstroom

The use of natural light and genuine connection to her subjects makes Laura Panacks work feel timeless. I stumbled upon Laura’s work when she first won the John Kobal Award for The National Portrait Gallery Taylor Wessing Prize in 2014. The almost effortless and fearless connection she has with her subjects is a trait that I admire. In her ongoing project “The Walks” Laura explains her process of just catching a train to some unplanned destination, armed only with her camera, and then just exploring the area and searching or waiting for subject matter to present itself.
