Pia Johnson is a Melbourne-based photographer who specialises in snapping the city’s performing artists. Her visual art practice investigates issues about cultural difference, diaspora and identity – themes she tells us are inspired by her Chinese and Anglo-Australian ancestry.
Pia’s works have been collected in private, corporate and public collections and her solo exhibition Who’s the Chinese lady that picks you up from school? (2009), a photographic portrait series of Chinese-Australians, was purchased by the National Gallery of Victoria.
Pia has an extensive client list and her photographs have been published in Rolling Stone and The Age, as well as independent and cultural papers.
It’s been a busy year for Pia so far with highlights including exhibitions at the Sydney Chinese New Year Festival and the Castlemaine State Festival, and she’ ll be visiting Studio Kura in Itoshima, Japan for a one month in October.
Pia’s solo exhibition ‘Finding Yourself at Home Alone’ will run from July 11 – August 4 at the Stockroom Kyneton.
