Eric’s Note: I have known Robert M Johnson for the internet for quite a while. I was initially drawn to his work from the nostalgia that it brought me (most of his work was shot in the 1970’s). I was drawn even closer to see his visual style and sharp eye for capturing moments and people. I also love seeing the similarity between his work and that of Frank, Cartier-Bresson, and Winogrand. Read a little more about him below, and check out his images too!
Robert M Johnson is an American Street Photographer located in Massachusetts, USA. He is a self taught photographer immersing himself in the history and nuances of his craft. His images were all shot during the classic 1970’s period of Street Photography. He always presents his work full frame and never crops an image.
His main concentration of Street Photography during that period was his hometown of Worcester, MA, a midsize city about 40 miles west of Boston. He also photographed other areas of the USA including the south and parts of California on various road trips that he made.
Robert has exhibited and published selected works of his both locally and nationally in the USA. He has also presented his photography extensively via the Internet for over ten years through his web site Full Frame Images. Robert’s background includes Photo-lithography and custom B&W printing.
Some of his favorite photographers include Robert Frank, Henri Cartier Bresson and Garry-Winogrand.
