Janna Añonuevo Langholz is a photo-based, interdisciplinary artist born and based in St. Louis, Missouri. She received a BFA in Fibers from Truman State University in 2011 and received a full fellowship to attend graduate school at SMU Meadows School of the Arts in 2013. She received her MFA in 2015 with a concentration in photography. Her work explores her Filipino American identity and relationship to place through photography and site-responsive interactions with architecture and the land, addressing themes such as human impact on the environment as well as regeneration and ability to thrive in an unstable world.

Her work has been shown throughout the U.S. in solo and group shows in St. Louis, Dallas, San Francisco, Portland, Taos (New Mexico), and Hilo (Hawaii). She received a fellowship from the artist program Signal Fire to participate in "unwalking" the Lewis & Clark trail from Oregon to Eastern Montana during summer 2016 and was an ACRE resident in 2017. She is also the founder and editor of Filipino American Artist Directory, an initiative to connect and promote Fil/Am artists in the U.S. and beyond.
