A bibliophile and image junkie, Johanna has worked in illustrated book publishing for 30 years as a picture editor, award-winning book and jacket designer, Art Director and Commissioning Editor.
She can be most helpful providing advice about international book publishing or with a design eye helping photographers in editing and sequencing work for portfolios/book projects.
When not making books (or helping others to do the same) she is an active member of the Photography community; a portfolio reviewer at various international photography festivals including Arles Rencontres; Fotofest Houston and Fotografiska’s Stockholm Photography week. For Photofusion Gallery, London, she devised and led the practical workshop “Editing, Sequencing and Bookmaking for Photographers”. She is also a member of the World Photography Academy and was one of the honorary jury for the 2014 World Photography Awards. In 2015 Hoxton Mini-Press published “Columbia Road” the results of her own Sunday Street Photography, in their East London Photography book series.
Currently Design Director at Thames & Hudson, she’s also acting as Commissioning Editor and/or Creative Director on new photography projects with Eamonn Doyle, Tim Walker, the V&A Museum and Magnum Photos.
