Exquisite Earth (2005-2010)

This exhibition is the first installment of a gathering of photographs by Stephen Johnson of work made during the last 5 years. This first exhibition is drawn exclusively from his work with Canon dSLR systems. The grouping is called Exquisite Earth and is meant to convey his deep appreciation for this extraordinary planet we call home. I hope you enjoy the collection.

Sometimes the mix of dream and reality is hard to distinguish, it seems much of my work rides an edge through that strange space where dream becomes reality and reality is beyond belief. It is a strange place to be suspended. It mixes the natural wonder of the real world with a dreamlike splendor that seems super real. It is in no small part why I completely fail to understand photographers in the digital age running around with notions of enhancing reality with Photoshop...
