Johnson was born and raised in Hong Kong. At the age of 14, he moved to the U.S. for school and found his passion for photography while at university. Being away from home at a young age, he’s built an appreciation for different cultures and is driven by the connection he has between him and the stories of his subjects.

In what ways does nature inspire or inform your work?

The colors and the warmth that it brings to me. Nature reminds me of my mother’s love, who I miss very deeply.

What does it mean to you to be part of a thriving ecosystem?

I feel a responsibility towards the environment. Our actions can have a ripple effect that resonates throughout the entire ecosystem. Being a part of thriving ecosystem is making sure we support its sustainability, for ourselves and for generations yet to come.
