Profile

Jana Sophia Nolle

Photographer

Jana Sophia Nolle (German, b. 1986) lives and works with her daughter in Berlin, Germany. Her practice, which consists of photography and found footage, operates at the intersection of research, observation and documentation, and shifts between conceptual photography, video, objects, and installations. Often, the starting point of her projects is based on either autobiographical experiences or social phenomena. Her interests reflect a fascination with social change and justice, fragile identities, as well as individuals embedded in socio-political transformations. Nolle’s photographs are included in numerous public and private collections and have been exhibited internationally in solo and group exhibitions, most recently at Haus am Kleistpark Berlin, Weserburg Museum für Moderne Kunst Bremen, Torrance Art Museum Los Angeles, Santo Tirso International Museum of Contemporary Sculpture Portugal, UNSEEN Amsterdam and the Catharine Clark Gallery in San Francisco. Her work “Living Room" won various grants, awards and prizes, including the Berlin Senate research grant 2021, the LensCulture Emerging Talent Award 2019, the 2020 the Haus am Kleistpark Photography Fellowship, and the Neuköllner Art Prize 2020. In 2020, she published the project, “Living Room, San Francisco” with Kerber Verlag. Since 2019 Nolle has been an affiliate artist with Catharine Clark Gallery, San Francisco, CA, USA. Nolle received her MSc from SOAS University and a degree in Photography from Ostkreuzschule.
