Johnson, Eirik - Borderlands (Extremely rare!)
His first monograph.
Eirik Johnson's photographs depict momentary scenes within overlooked landscapes that exist along the fraying edges of the contemporary environment. Johnson searches the boundaries between public and private land, where the framework of urban order begins to break down. It is in these non-spaces that temporary relationships occur as forces of nature - flooding, brush fires, tidal change - come into contact with the physical presence of the urban environment. The photographs portray in detail the quietly unfolding dramas and uneasy beauty of these encounters.
Photographic artist Eirik Johnson (b. 1974) makes work examining the intersections of contemporary environmental, social, and economic issues both in America and abroad. Employing various modes of presentation from photobooks to experiential photo and sound-based installation, Johnson’s photographic projects explore the marks and connections formed in the friction of this complicated relationship. Johnson received his BFA and BA from the University of Washington, Seattle, WA in 1997 and his MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2003.
He has exhibited his work at institutions including the Aperture Foundation, NY, the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston MA, and the George Eastman House, Rochester, NY.
