Jo Ann Tooley has taken pictures most of her adult life. Her father was a professional photographer in east Tennessee. One of her favorite locales for shooting is West Virginia. Even though it is lush and colorful there, she prefers black & white because stripping a scene of its color allows the viewer to see it a different way. Tooley shoots mostly with film and prints her own images using the finest papers and archival inks.

She has exhibited widely in the Washington, D.C. area, including the Torpedo Factory, Target Gallery, Multiple Exposures Gallery, Mosaic Gallery, Edison Place Gallery, Barry Gallery, Photoworks, the Corner Store Gallery, the Popcorn Gallery, and the Art League

She is a member of the Torpedo Factory Artists Association, and the Art League. She served on the Board of the Art League and as co-director of TAG, a gallery for juried artists of the Torpedo Factory. A few years ago, she founded f11, A Women’s Photography Collective, a group of 8 fine art photographers.♦
