Jojo was raised in New York’s Hudson River Valley, and remembers having a Kodak Instamatic X-35F camera as a girl. The best part was after sending the film off in the mail, she would get the package back, addressed to her, with her prints from the weeks before. It seemed like magic.
She went on to study photography before its digital age, and continues to shoot with film. She processes the black and white photographs herself now, and still has a moment of heart skipping excitement when she sees what has been revealed.
After her formal education, she traveled across the U.S., then Europe, and had extended stays in France, New Mexico and New Hampshire as an artist in residence. She also worked in the fashion photo world of New York City for many years.
