1854 Presents: Laura Pannack explores her latest project Baruch

Reading Time: < 1 minute

 In this event, Laura Pannack walks through the artistic and emotional process of her latest project

Interviewed by 1854 Media’s Zoe Harrison, London-based photographer Laura Pannack walks us through her latest work. Supported by Panasonic LUMIX’s Stories for Change, and in collaboration with British Journal of Photography, Pannack traveled to Israel meeting Baruch, a young Hasidic man on the brink of major personal change. The project follows Baruch’s life exploring his relationships with faith, family, and transformation. 

“Nothing is certain in life, we all have an expectation of a path we might take,” Says Pannack. Through her soft, personal eye, Pannack is able to capture a story of faith and transformation through this collaboration. In this Q&A, questions regarding the project’s future, artistic processes, and the ethics of documentary photography are all investigated.

Pannack was awarded a LUMIX S Series kit to shoot the project as part of the LUMIX Stories for Change initiative: a collaboration with British Journal of Photography that highlights photography’s power in driving positive change.
