Following a 40 year career as an architectural photographer, I have returned to what first attracted me to photography. The black and white fine art image – particularly, landscape and elements within the landscape. Today I use a digital camera, computer, and archival printer much as I once used a view camera and darkroom. Each image is carefully composed and printed.

These images are not intended to convey any commentary on the social, cultural, or political state of the world in which we find ourselves, nor are they about the process used to create them. They are about light and form, and seeing, not merely looking at the world. As artists, we are compelled to share parts of our lives and perceptions through the images we create. Some of our efforts may end up lost or forgotten. A few may strike a chord in others. Perhaps we all, in one way or another, want to ask ‘Do you see and hear the things I do? Am I alone?

Ron Johnson Photography
We live in a world that values speed and technology. Yet, as a photographer and artist, I crave a slower pace with a focus on nature and storytelling with my work. I’m drawn to everyday life and objects – whether it’s my own shell collection or finding out what others treasure in their lives. I see a special beauty and value in these objects of our past and the craftsmanship of those who still work with their hands. After a career in public relations, I’m searching for an emotional connection in my photography. While so many photographers have moved on to digital cameras, I’ve stayed with film and the darkroom. There’s something special about the film process that slows you down not only when shooting but also in the darkroom. Using a Hasselblad medium format camera, each of my silver gelatin photographs are hand-printed using archival darkroom techniques.
