Part of the Auckland Festival of Photography

Working with photography as her principal medium, Shannon’s practice also incorporates drawing and video. Her use of a large-format camera and her own hand-printing results in sharp, finely detailed silver gelatin prints, variously toned with sepia, selenium and gold. Shannon is interested in the narrative or poetic resonance of the single object, “using photography to display, or show something and to ask the viewer to pay particular attention to it.”
