Eirik Johnson Wins Santa Fe Prize for Photography


Landscape photographer Eirik Johnson, of San Francisco, has won this year's Santa Fe Prize for Photography, given by the Santa Fe Center for Photography. Johnson's project, "Borderlands," is a series of large-format prints depicting overlooked landscapes along the edges of the contemporary environment. A monograph of the work is to be published in July by Twin Palm Publishers and the Museum of Contemporary Photography.
Born and raised in Seattle, Johnson is a graduate of the University of Washington and received his MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. His work has been exhibited at the Rena Branstein Gallery, San Francisco Camerawork, Stanford University and the Headlands Center for the Arts.
