Jo Ann Tooley is a fine art photographer who specializes in black & white. She shoots mostly with film and uses a medium format camera. Her favorite locales for shooting are in and around Washington D.C. and West Virginia. Many of her images reflect isolation and solitude. Certain scenes, especially ones she remembers from her youth—flowers growing wild in open fields, empty roads with sun filtering through the trees, or a lone tree sitting in the middle of a field—evoke strong feelings that she tries to recapture with her camera. She prints her images digitally using the finest papers and archival inks. Her work has been exhibited throughout Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia, including Photo Works at Glen Echo, Target Gallery, the Artisphere, Barry Gallery, Delaplaine Art Center, the Art League and the Ellipse Gallery in Arlington. She is represented by the Associates Gallery at the Torpedo Factory. Her print prices start at $100; framed images are in the $250 - $300 range.
