Sean O'Connell: Broth Tarn
Sean O’Connell is a Barnsley based photographer and mixed media artist. O’Connell, who works mainly in black and white film photography, documents his friends, family and community engaging in daily life against the backdrop of the original architecture and suburbs of his hometown. In 2017, O’Connell’s gritty aesthetic and rejection of gentrification lead him to shoot a portfolio of images for Burberry.
O’Connell’s work is deeply personal. As well as photographing the people around him, he also believes in immersing himself fully within the settings that he depicts and sees creative value in the found objects, physical markings and overheard conversations of his surroundings.
