About Shannon Johnstone
Shannon Johnstone’s photographic work deals with themes that reclaim what has been discarded and make visible that which is hidden. Her project,
"Landfill Dogs", has been featured in national and international exhibitions and magazines, and was most notably on ABC World News with Diane Sawyer (2013), and CNN.com (2014). Her recent project “Stardust and Ashes” was a Critical Mass Finalist (2017), and exhibited at “The Front" in New Orleans, LA (2017). Most recently, both projects were featured at Colorado Springs Fine Art Center (Year of the Dog, 2018). Johnstone is a tenured professor at Meredith College in Raleigh, NC.
