Julie Johnson: “I create photographs to remind myself of how rich it is to experience being alive. I approach photography as a three­ dimensional art in a two dimensional world. I see it as my job to build the visual layers of texture and color within the subjects. It is my deep desire for viewers of my work to walk away with a stronger sense of connectedness to the little things in our daily lives that make us feel whole and awake.”

Julie Johnson is a teacher and artist in St. Louis working primarily in photography. Johnson's artwork has been greatly impacted by her time working with clients and students in social services and as an educator in St. Louis City and County. She is most known for her photographs of urban landscapes, street art, and city streets that depict the broad spectrum of experiences that occur within city life. In addition to photographing the city, Johnson loves to turn her work into a personal experience by organizing photo walks around her city while also teaching participants the basics of photography, smart phone photography and how to use photography as a meditation tool, among other things. Johnson received her Bachelors of Fine Arts in Art History and Photography from the University of Kansas. Julie Johnson has studied studio art in Ireland and Italy, displayed her work in several galleries around St. Louis and Kansas City and teaches community based photography classes.
