About 


Joanna is a Maltese photographer and writer who is interested in exploring social issues within her home country. Besides that, she is drawn to investigating the effects of new technologies on individuals and society at large. All these factors inspire her to use photography, video and writing to create journalistic stories. 

After having graduated in Ba.Communications (Hons) from the University of Malta in 2012, she went on to pursue an MA in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at London College of Communication in 2014.

She has published work in a variety of publications and for a number of organisations including Die Zeit, AFP, The Times of Malta, TROUW, The Malta Independent, Political Critique, Open Society Foundations, Transgender Europe and UNHCR, amongst others. 

Throughout 2018 she was mentored by Women Photograph under the guidance of Kate Bubacz and Endia Beal.
