Biography

Are there any changes we should make?

Note that the Kelvin History website is a newly innovated addition to our school's many historical memorabilias. With the hundreds of biographies already added by a group of dedicated students we are not always opportuned to receive information that would better benefit our alumni biographies. If by chance you feel as though you have some missing details on any particular alumni then we will graciously accept to hear about them from you personally!

Sarah Johnson

Sarah Anne Johnson (1976-) is an internationally recognized artist. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Manitoba (2002), and a Master of Fine Arts from the Yale School of Art (2004). Johnson’s Tree Planting (2002-2005) is a series of photographs that document her time as a tree planter in Manitoba’s north. In its last installment, she explores the conflict between nostalgia for the past and its reality when she juxtaposes photographs of actual tree planters with photographs of tree planter dolls made in studio. Johnson’s The Galapagos Project (2005), In the Forest (2006), and Arctic Wonderland (2011), similarly examine the relationship between photography, memory, and the environment. Johnson’s work has been exhibited in collections around the world including at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the National Gallery of Canada, and the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography. The New York Times and the Toronto Star, as well as several Canadian art magazines, have written about Johnson’s creations. She is the winner of several awards including the inaugural Grange Prize (2008), which is a $50,000 award recognizing her talent as a contemporary photographer.
