Sam Johnson finds satisfaction in creating beauty through perceivable mundanity. Capturing people’s attention and introducing them to alternate realities is part of a wider transformative practice, looking Jungian landscapes.
The minimalist compositions adhere to a rising interest in the globalised world; road signs, pavements and manmade placements consider how humanity is translating nature. Clouds seem intentionally placed in centre focus, whilst concrete becomes a character of its own.
Ultimately, Johnson’s images are part of an increasing tapestry of anonymity, delving into the contemporary landscape with an almost birds-eye focus on the encroaching urbanisation of the land.
