Joanne Jackson Johnson
replicates a standard form of archival photographic documentation, capturing
a sense of neglected objects that she has found in the Yukon landscape.
Whether manufactured or naturally occurring, the subjects of her images
are shown to be dead or in a state of decay. For instance, “Dead Common
Redpoll,” part of the More Land Than People series, evokes an open-ended
sense of the fragility of the environment.
