Keith Johnson

January 2005

Light Work is pleased to introduce our current Artist-in-Residence Keith Johnson. Keith arrived at Light Work in January armed with boxes of large- format paper for photographic and digital prints. He has since been vigorously printing chromogenic photographs on our Hope processor, while also preparing digital museum-quality images for his upcoming exhibition at The Print Center in Philadelphia. A prolific artist, Keith has set out to create his final chromogenic print portfolio, before switching permanently to digital prints.

Keith Johnson has been involved in photography since the early seventies. He graduated in 1975 from Rhode Island School of Design with an MFA and studied with Harry Callahan and Aaron Siskind after spending a year at Visual Studies Workshop with Nathan Lyons. He has exhibited throughout the United States, most recently in solo shows at George Eastman House in Rochester, NY; College for Creative Studies in Detroit, MI; the Art Institute of Boston; The University of the Arts, Philadelphia, PA; and CEPA Gallery in Buffalo, NY.
