Acacia Johnson’s “Origins”

July 02, 2014

In her photographic series “Origins”, Acacia Johnson explores her roots through the landscape of her native state. The recent Rhode Island School of Design graduate and Alaska native has created a series that is both intimate and spacial. Johnson contrasts the vast and picturesque landscape with the close bond she has with her family in a way that draws the viewer into her world. With the passage of time as a reoccurring theme throughout her images, she uses it to abstract her landscapes into seemingly surreal scenes.
