Acacia Johnson is an artist and photographer from Alaska. Drawn to remote places and otherworldly landscapes, her work has focused on the environment, conservation, and the connections between people and place. After receiving a Fulbright grant to Arctic Canada in 2014, she has made over fifty expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctica as a photographer and a guide—an effort to inspire wonder and compassion for these remote regions during a time of rapid change.
 
Her photographs have been exhibited internationally and are housed in collections at the Anchorage Museum and the Smithsonian Museum of American History. Her work has appeared in National Geographic, The New York Times, TIME, and The Guardian, among others. In 2020, she was featured on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list for Art and Style, and in 2021 received the Canon Female Photojournalist Grant.

She is based between Alaska and Sweden and is available for assignments worldwide.
