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 nationally and internationally, and was most notably on ABC World News with Diane Sawyer (2013), and (2014). Her recent project, “Stardust and Ashes”, was a Critical Mass Finalist (2017), and exhibited at “The Front” in New Orleans, LA (2017). Both projects were featured at Colorado Springs Fine Art Center (Year of the Dog, 2018), and the Gaddy-Hamrick Art Gallery (All Creatures Great and Small, 2019). Johnstone is a tenured professor at Meredith College in Raleigh, NC.
