Janna Ireland was born in Philadelphia in 1985 and now resides in Los Angeles. She is an assistant professor in the Department of Art and Art History at Occidental College. Her photographic work is primarily concerned with the themes of family, home, and the expression of Black identity in American culture. She has had solo exhibitions at Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas, Schneider Gallery, Chicago, and WUHO Gallery, Los Angeles.
Johanna’s interest in photography began in 2008, in the aftermath of a bout with breast cancer. As part of her journey she joined DPChallenge, which served as her “education”. It was the creation of an image for one of the site’s challenges which prompted her into a career in photography. In the first few years, she had four solo shows and seven group shows; was selected as the artist in residence by the National Park Service for a project in the Mojave National Preserve; was both a finalist and received honorable mentions from over 18,000 entries two years running for the Urban Photographer of the Year photo contest. Her images have been featured in numerous magazines and publications, including the Royal Photographic Society Journal, Los Angeles Times, and Vogue Magazine.
