Jannica Honey


Swedish-born Jannica Honey moved to Edinburgh to study photography and digital imaging after completing a BA in Humanities (anthropology & criminology) at Stockholm University 1998.

After building extensive editorial experience as The List Magazine’s in-house photographer, where she shot more than 20 covers and covered the full-spectrum of arts, travel, food and events, she began focusing on more challenging subjects in a series of photo essays.

A significant proportion of her recent work has focused on musicians (subjects include The Killers, Emma Pollock, Frightened Rabbit, The Horrors and Young Fathers) with her photographs appearing in The Guardian, LA Times, Aftenposten, Svenska Dagbladet, The Scotsman, the Sunday Herald, Vogue, Dazed & Confused, Tank, Aesthetica Magazine and Swedish Gaffa.

Moreover, her sensitive portrayal has led to her being commissioned to photograph a wide range of events ranging from feminist conferences to the Anglo-Swedish society receptions at the House of Commons and Buckingham Palace.

Honey’s latest project is her most ambitious to date and sees her working within the constraints of the brief interludes of twilight and only shooting on the new and full moon over 12 months. ’When The Blackbird Sings’ portrays the multiple aspects of the female cycle through photographs of women and nature (Sweden/Scotland).
