Kathleen Johnson is a World Traveler, Outdoors Adventurer, Research Scientist and Photographer. She has been making photographs since childhood, but began serious photography as an undergraduate taking her first B&W photography class, and documenting field studies as a Geology Student and later as a full time Earth Science researcher. Her work continued to be largely documentary in style and work related, until a move to Monterey, California in 2000. Here, Kathleen pursued formal studies in B&W photography at Monterey Peninsula College. Monterey being the ‘Home’ of Classic B&W Photography there were many opportunities for students to exhibit their work, and she participated in a number of gallery shows and national competitions.
Following a move to Colorado and recovery from a life-threatening illness, Kathleen is again submitting her work to galleries and competitions, and is a frequent contributor to EMULSIVE Online Journal. Kathleen’s preferred subjects are: Landscapes and Architecture. She makes silver prints in her own home darkroom.
Other Creative Interests include: Gardening and Singing Spirituals and Classical Choral Master Works. She studies voice and is a member of the Rocky Mountain Chorale, the Boulder Sing Along Messiah Chorus and First Methodist Church (Boulder) Special Choral Performances.
