Joni Lohr


In my early 20’s, a friend gave me a twin lens camera and told me to use it.  I had no idea what I was doing, but went to a local park and took pictures of trees, the terrain, and two young boys who were playing there.  I loved the clarity of the photos, discovered an eye for composition, and fell in love with capturing my world on film. Fifty years later, I’m still indulging that passion, although with more sophisticated equipment.  My photographic interests are diverse: live performance, portraits, street photography, and abandonment are most prominent.  I'm a documentarian - I love story telling.

I belong to the Boston Camera Club, the Jamaica Plain Artists Association, and photograph for numerous bands, dance and theatre groups throughout the Boston area, including the Harvard Dance Theater, Impulse Dance Company and Beantown Tap. I also photograph events for local charitable organizations, including the Loring-Greenough House, Jamaica Plain Porchfest, Wee the People, Friendship Works for Elders, and the South Street Youth Center.

I have exhibited at the Morini Gallery, the Charles Fine Arts Gallery, JP Open Studios’ Art Projections (Juror’sChoice Award), Sotheby’s Jamaica Plain, and Fusco & Four Modern.
