** NEW** ZOI | photographs from GREECE.
"This work is about the celebration of life and a desire to shine light on the bridge that connects the past and the present, a story of origins not just specific but universal. Stella has returned to her roots in an exploration to define her provenance and find footing in her ancestral history. It is about becoming. Bringing to light cultural tradition and engaging our instinctual desires for human connection and community. In documenting daily lives of her family and friends in Greece, Stella proposes a new way of looking at our own lives, re-imagining the mundane in our day to day and illuminating purpose."
AL SOL | Photographs from mexico, CAMEROON, AND NICARAGUA
“The photographs of Al Sol convey the universality of cultures as expressed through the rituals of daily life. Stella Johnson's dynamic compositions erupt with fragmented bodies and dense patterns. Shadows complicate the picture space, adding or altering shapes, and beams of light irradiate figures. The connection Johnson makes with the communities she photographs is not simply about documenting a culture or capturing a story, but about extending the meaning of family and maintaining relationships with people from seemingly faraway places, who, in turn, become part of her family back in Boston.”
