Gerry Johansson

Gerry Johansson was born in Varberg. In his teens, Johansson began to take an interest in photography, and began documenting urban environments during a sojourn in New York in the early 1960s.

He studied graphic design at Konstindustriskolan in Gothenburg between 1965 and 1969, after which he worked for fifteen years as a graphic designer. Since the mid-1980s, Johansson has been working as an independent photographer. He recently completed a trilogy of books portraying America (1998), Sweden (2005) and Germany (2007). His photographs depict places, landscapes and cities in finely-tuned, detailed images. Johansson works in a documentary tradition and is an exponent of classical black-and-white photography.
