Swedish-born Jannica Honey moved to Edinburgh to study photography after completing a BA in Humanities (anthropology & criminology) at Stockholm University 1998. Honey is an award-winning photographer who, alongside extensive experience photographing high profile musicians, politicians and contributing to prominent publications & creates thought-provoking, eloquent photo essays ex: Mohawks in Kahnawake, lap-dancers in Edinburgh and amphetamine users in Stockholm.
Her project “When The Blackbird Sings” was exhibited at Arusha Gallery and received nationwide press-coverage in the United Kingdom.

“In 2016 I felt compelled to reaffirm my own ‘feminine voice’ in the face of all the personal challenges and male-dominated political events – in particular the US elections. By basing my shooting schedule on moon cycles – an intrinsic feminine rhythm – I managed to channel the earth’s natural rhythms into the work, and explored my own reconnection to womanhood and femininity.”
