Donnie Johnston introduced himself to photography in 2007. His passion for photography and admiration of Detriot with all of its abandonment and gritty resilience have resulted in a number of breathtaking images, all composed with an acute attention to detail and intense focus.
His experimentation with film (developing his own images in the darkroom he set up in his closet), has produced incredible, crisp, black and white images with intense contrast and emphasis on lighting. The light play in his digital images is compounded by vibrant colours and attention grabbing compositions.
There is no question that Donnie's images leave viewers fixated, questioning, and wanting more.
