Jaime received her B.F.A. from the University of Mississippi in Imaging Arts and her M.F.A. in Photography at Louisiana Tech University. Her work has been featured in exhibitions and venues across the US such as the SOHO Photo Gallery in New York, the New Orleans Photo Alliance, and the Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, Colorado. Johnson’s series Untamed won the Grand Prize in the Maine Media Workshops international contest Character: Portraits and Stories that Reveal the Human Condition. Jaime was recently named a finalist for the 2014 Clarence John Laughlin award, which is granted to a photographer who uses the medium as a means of creative expression.
Johnson’s series Untamed chronicles the intimate relationship of a feral woman and her surrounding natural environment. She collects the bones, branches, and flora of her world and treads with the animals, both dead and living. The historic cyanotype process shifts focus from potentially colorful landscapes and figures to patterns, textures, and the relationships of forms within the images. Discovery—both psychological and physical— is present and reveals each of us, whether human or animal, is a part of a shared experience. Jaime’s work ultimately reflects upon the forms, the impermanence, and the interconnectedness of nature’s life.
