Documenting the Everyday with Sarah Pannell


In this one-day workshop you will begin with a brief on creating a short sequence of photographs exploring the concept of the ‘everyday’. Following this, you will take part in a photo walk, using techniques and ideas outlined in the brief. These images will be printed during the lunch break, then edited, sequenced and discussed in the afternoon session of the workshop.

Combining landscape, street and documentary styles of photography, participants will be challenged to find interesting and original visual elements in their everyday life, endeavouring to create a sequence of photographs that weave a simple narrative.

Sarah Pannell will draw on her experience, as a documentary photographer and photo-bookmaker to explore the idea of documenting ones own ‘backyard’ or ‘everyday’. Sarah’s photograph’s attain a specific quality through her use of framing and choice of perspective, as well as the subtle use of natural light in combination with often vibrant colours.


10am-4pm, Fri 24 May
Meeting at The Library Project, 4 Temple Bar Street, Dublin 2
