Andrew Christian Johnson (b.1987) is an independent documentary photographer and videographer based between Canada and Brazil. After studying political science and print journalism he discovered the potential of visual storytelling to better our understanding of ourselves, the world and our places in it.
Drawn to narratives of class and inequality, his work aims to challenge entrenched perspectives of contemporary society through intimate portraits and visual documentation of the human experience. He believes the work reaches its full potential by encouraging the audience to feel and question rather than simply be informed.
Andrew has contributed his work to publications such as the Globe and Mail, Toronto Star and Mongabay as well as select exhibitions in Canada and Brazil.
Along with his native English he speaks fluent Brazilian Portuguese.
Andrew is available for assignments and commissions.
