Does the ability to capture the natural world through digital photography fascinate you? Photographers of all levels and nature enthusiasts will want to schedule a trip to California for a new exhibit at The Pacifica Center for the Arts. The show will feature an extraordinary collection of new works by noted digital photographer Stephen Johnson.

Five years in the making, the Life Form Series builds on Stephen Johnson‘s longtime fascination with organic form and design. Finding solace in the natural world, he has incorporated his respect for all living things in these rich, detailed images, which demonstrate his mastery of photography.  The large, bold and colorful Life Form images reveal a fascinating real world around us, rarely seen at this clarity, detail and appreciation.

Inception of Digital Photography

Johnson earlier helped birth the era of digital photography via his lush, large-format digital images captured throughout the U.S. national parks system in the 1990s. He has consulted and advised many major photography industry stalwarts through their transition into the modern digital photographic era.  Johnson has maintained his commitment to his “real witness of real scenes” approach to photography and has taught that ethos to thousands of students in his photography workshops.

Stephen Johnson is a Canon Explorer of Light as well as a landscape photographer, designer and teacher. In 2003, he was inducted into the Photoshop Hall of Fame. X-Rite named him as a founding member of their exclusive Coloratti color experts group in 2007. Stephen’s books include At Mono Lake, the award-winning and critically acclaimed The Great Central Valley: California’s Heartland, Making a Digital Book and Stephen Johnson on Digital Photography.
