About Sarah Anne Johnson

Sarah Anne Johnson works in various mediums, focusing on themes of nature and idealism. Her series of photographs, “Tree Planting” (2002-5), is a collection of images taken while Johnson spent a summer on a reforestation project in northern Canada—documentary photos interspersed with images of small figures staged in the landscape. For her series “Artic Wonderland” (2010-11), Johnson took photos in the Arctic Circle and altered them using paint, Photoshop, and techniques of embossing and printmaking. “I do this to create a more honest image,” she says. “To show not just what I saw, but how I feel about what I saw.”
