In 2020 Janna Ireland published Regarding Paul R. Williams: A Photographer’s View. Paul R. Williams, known as “Hollywood’s Architect” was the first Black architect admitted to the American Institute of Architecture. Throughout his wildly successful career Williams designed over 2,000 buildings, including the homes of entertainment legends Lucille Ball, Frank Sinatra, and Barbara Stanwyck. In Regarding Paul R. Williams Ireland explores the work and legacy for Paul R. Williams through a series of intimate black-and-white photographs, exploring both the skill of Williams’ architecture and the social conditions under which he worked as a Black architect decades before the Civil Rights Movement.

Janna Ireland was born in Philadelphia, but has chosen Los Angeles as her home. She holds an MFA from the UCLA Department of Art and a BFA from the Department of Photography and Imaging at NYU. Her work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions across the United States and internationally, and is held in the collections of institutions including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the California African American Museum, and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. Ireland is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Art and Art History at Occidental College.
