Shawn Johnston (They/Them) is a Two Spirit Anishinaabe originally from Couchiching First Nation located on Treaty #3 territory. They currently reside on Deshkan Ziibi territory. For Shawn, photography began as a hobby five years ago before they decided to take it a step further. They packed up their apartment, left their job, and travelled for a year to work on a photo project. Shawn’s journey took them to twelve beautiful countries and they made some new friends along the way.

Shawn’s goal with every photo they take is to create space, amplify voices, and share people’s stories. Their work is queer, inclusive, and diverse.
