In 2018 it was #wearexperimenting for the Cultural Spring and NEPN. This project saw Jo take a darkroom tent around community festivals and centres to create artwork investigating photography and science’s cross overs. Using traditional chemical processes in combination with digital distribution to explore notions of place and self.

After completing a BA Hons in Photography, Video and Digital Imaging at Sunderland University, Howell set up her photographic studio. Initially at Creative Cohesion in the City Centre after attaining a scholarship studio, Howell aimed her creative practise towards developing projects, teaching workshops, and commercial filmmaking with photography.
