Biography

Acacia Johnson is a photographer from Alaska, focused on human relationships to the earth's Polar Regions. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, Acacia now lives in Scandinavia and exhibits her work internationally.

In 2014, Acacia was awarded a Fulbright grant in Canada to pursue a project about Inuit relationships to the winter landscape of Baffin Island, resulting in the series Under The Same Stars. Her work is included in collections including the Anchorage Museum and the Smithsonian Museum of American History, and has been featured in numerous publications, including National Geographic. She is increasingly interested in using photography to explore anthropological issues in the Arctic and Antarctica.

Acacia often works as a seasonal expedition guide and lecturer in Greenland, Svalbard, the Canadian Arctic and Antarctica, where she lectures on photography, Arctic indigenous culture, and visual representations of the Polar Regions. She has made over 50 expeditions to the Polar Regions both for work and personal projects. When not at sea, she spends her time in Alaska and Scandinavia.
