The Moment It Clicks: Photography of Kim Johnson
Kim Johnson was raised in Crawfordsville, received her Bachelor's and Masters degrees from Purdue. She explains how she became interested in photography, "Photography has always been a hobby but really began to take shape when I started shooting my own photos for the marketing work I was doing. I became involved in a local art show, sold a few pieces, and started getting requests to take portraits for friends. Since then I continue to fall more in love with photography every time the shutter clicks.
"My "day job" in the Communications Office at Wabash College is intertwined with writing, design, and photography. I am also a wife and the mother of a four-year-old that, like most four-year-olds, does not stop moving unless she is asleep."
Kim says she has two simple goals with my photography: "bring glory to God by helping people capture the big and small miracles of life – because truly, every moment we continue to move and breathe and love and live is a miracle; and second, to walk away from every shoot saying "that was the best work I have done." Her work, as demonstrated by the over 100 images in the gallery, proves that she is achieving those goals.
The Mary Bishop Memorial Gallery at the Crawfordsville District Public is located at 205 S Washington Street in Crawfordsville. Hours for the gallery are the same as the public library hours, Monday through Thursday 9 am to 9 pm, Friday and Saturday 9 am to 5 pm, and Sunday 1 pm to 5 pm.
