Photographer Eirik Johnson Explores Logging & Sawdust In The Pacific Northwest.

Boston’s photographer Eirik Johnson captures images of decay in a way that makes them look not just gorgeous in their grunge, but truly sophisticated and somehow even positive. He has some pieces permanently in numerous institutions, including the Museum of Contemporary Photography, the National Fulbright Foundation, and the Joseph and Elaine Monsen Collection.

Although the reception for his current solo show at the G. Gibson Gallery is now in the past, the exhibit will be on display until May 30th, and will dive into the slightly dirty, wholly fascinating world of logging, as set in various regions throughout the Pacific Northwest.
