profile



Åsa Johannesson is a Swedish London based artist working across photography, installations and writing. Their practice examines the relationship between queer identity, representation, and photographic materiality. With a focus on nonconforming gender, it draws from historical photographic representations of Otherness, traditional studio portraiture, and personal narratives surrounding the artist’s own tomboy and twin identity. Åsa has an MA and a PhD from the Royal College of Art and is a Senior Lecturer in Photography at the University of Brighton.
