Close to painting and filming, Johanna has been practising 35mm film photography daily since 2010. In 2014, her work was selected by the M+ Museum (Hong Kong) curators as one of the thirteen photography practices published in Pipeline Contemporary Art Magazine's Photography Issue. In 2022, Jane & Jeremy (UK) published Work The Soul Must Have, Johanna Tagada Hoffbeck's first photography book. The same year, Terrace Square Photo Tokyo (Japan) presented a solo exhibition of her photography practice titled Caring & Tender.

In 2010, Johanna started a simple photography project titled Analog Diary, in which she ventures to capture daily beauty. While keeping in mind similar concerns as to painting, she explores colours, frames and textures, building a coherent body of work. Photographic cycles and photographic series are composed within Analog Diary, which stands as a starting point and reference.
Photographs by Johanna Tagada Hoffbeck have been published in and commissioned by titles including M Le Monde (FR), The Weekender (Germany), Oh Comely (UK), The Carton(Lebanon), Hole & Corner Magazine, Moon Magazine (UK) and Hanatsubaki Magazine (JP). Johanna is open to commissions and enjoys focusing on tea, architecture, crafts, plant-based food, gardening, people and plants.
