Jenny Hannah Roche is a narrative-based photographer working in analog and digital mediums. Raised by a golden-haired gypsy mother under a fog blanket in rural Oregon, she grew tall and saucy in a log cabin fashioned with a Jacuzzi bathtub but no indoor toilet to speak of. Mom traded Grateful Dead shows for Disneyland vacations and purchased Jenny Hannah her first camera, at age sixteen.
The pursuit of higher education was the most expensive gift she ever gave herself. At 26, she attended Pacific Northwest College of Art, where she was awarded participation in the 2007 New York Studio program. She graduated as photo laureate in 2009 and completed her thesis work with the series "Memento Morie."
She currently makes work and lives in Eugene, Oregon with the love of her life, two-year-old daughter Tigerlily Bowie, and a pair of exceptionally gorgeous and demanding cats named Lazer and Beam.
