With a focus on gender fluidity, Åsa Johannesson examines relationships between gender, self-image and photographic portraiture. She is interested in the ways in which the photographic portrait can be used to represent and rethink identities and how encounters can be created between viewer and image.

Åsa studied Photography at the Royal College of Art in London. Currently, she is completing a practice-based PhD at London College of Communication/University of the Arts. Research title: Looking Out, Looking In: Representation and the Viewer in Queer Photography. Åsa is based in East London, where she lives and works.
