This 4 days workshop will focus on the relationship between photographer and subject. Participants will be expected to research and think deeply about the theme in a broad sense. This workshop is aimed at challenging the photographer outside of his or her comfort zone and inspire new ideas and approaches.

‘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 – photographer.

One out of seven people in Berlin come originally from outside Germany. The city has a long history of immigration- but numbers are still high today as it is estimated that about 100 foreigners a day moved there in 2013.

Read here the interview we had with Laura about her work.

Laura Pannack is a London based Photographer. She was educated at the University of Brighton Central Saint Martins College of Art and LCC. Her work has been extensively exhibited and published both in the UK and internationally, including at The National Portrait Gallery, The Houses of Parliament, Somerset House, and the Royal Festival Hall in London. In 2010 Laura received first prize in the Portrait Singles category of the World Press Photo awards. She has also won and been shortlisted for several other awards including The Sony World Photography Awards, The Magenta foundation and Lucies IPA. She was recently awarded the Vic Odden by The Royal Photographic Society award for a notable achievement in the art of photography by a British photographer aged 35 or under.

Laura is a firm believer that “time, trust and understanding is the key to portraying subjects truthfully”, and as such, many of her projects develop over several years. Her particular approach allows a genuine connection to exist between sitter and photographer, which in turn elucidates the intimacy of these very human exchanges. Her images aim to suggest the shared ideas and experiences that are entwined in each frame that she shoots.
