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

After building extensive editorial experience as 'The List' Magazine's in-house photographer; where she shot more than twenty 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. In 2011 Honey spent several months shooting lap-dancers in Edinburgh for an exhibition that premiered at the city’s Festival Fringe, providing a candid and unusual perspective.

The following winter she visited the Mohawk reservation in Kahnawake (Montreal, Canada) portraying residents including chiefs, peace officers, and drug dealers. Later that year she returned to her native Stockholm to document the life of a group of ageing amphetamine addicts, a community her recently deceased aunt had belonged to.

In the summer of 2013 Honey was given unprecedented access to photograph the Orange Order's controversial parade through Glasgow, capturing both the marchers and by-standers.

A significant proportion of her recent work has focused on musicians (subjects include: The Killers, Emma Pollock, Frightened Rabbit, Kathyrn Joseph, Dougie MacLean, The Horrors, Young Fathers) with her photographs appearing in The Guardian, LA Times, Aftenposten, Svenska Dagbladet, The Scotsman, the Sunday Herald, Vogue, Dazed and Confused, Tank, Aesthetica Magazine, and 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. Her subjects have included Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, opposition leaders Kezia Dugdale and Ruth Davidson, as well as the Duke Of Edinburgh.
