Shawn Russell Johnson

Writer, Photographer, Stoked About Everything

At a young age Shawn discovered his love of music, while attending as many underground shows and concerts that his parents would allow (and sneaking out for many more). During his tenure at SUNY Purchase, his love for music only grew, and with the expansion of his education he discovered a love and affinity for photography as well. Combining these appreciations, he found his calling: photographing shows and writing about them; sharing his passion and experiences with others. Influenced by artists from both mediums and multiple genres including Modest Mouse, Kanye West, RX Bandits, Tycho, Pat Graham and Thomas Struth he continues to discover new music and is always striving for the perfect shot.
