Nick Johnson


2009 Exhibit Dates
Mar 17 To Apr 09

Working exclusively with a large format camera, Nick Johnson's photographs portray manipulated rock and flagstones that resemble abstract landscapes. His technical mastery is apparent as he captures the images on film with minimal lighting in order to preserve a feeling of natural light. Johnson believes that photography ultimately must work at a visual level that transcends the subject matter. In creating images, he is motivated by a belief that there are new levels of dimensions and harmonies to be found within the formal visual language.

Nick Johnson has been a fine-art photographer for over 30 years. He teaches photography at the New England School of Photography, and is the Director of the school's Center for Photographic Exhibitions.
