North Carolina photographer Jo Ann Tomaselli on her art: ‘As artists, we all have goals for the work we create and share. I regard each image a success when it brings even the smallest measure of wonder or joy to those who see it. Inspired by color, shape and design, the process of making photographs continues to intrigue and delight years after picking up my first film camera.’ Access Jo Ann’s portfolio at joanntomaselli.com
