Based in New York, Michael Johnson specializes in portrait and documentary photography.  He recently earned his master's degree in digital photography from New York's prestigious School of Visual Arts and exhibits his large format fine art work in the city. Johnson's diverse background has ranged from magazine editing and creative writing to curriculum development and large-scale project management, experience that allows him to bring a unique skill set and sensibility to his work. His most recent project explores the relationship between people and their places through a combination of studio portraits, text and environmental imagery.
