About the artist: Kirk Johnston has been interested in photography since he was a teenager.  An image from his first roll of film was entered into competition at the Red River Exhibition Provincial Open Photo Competition in Winnipeg and he received an honourable mention for his inaugural effort. Since his early retirement in 2001 he has greatly expanded his photographic horizons. He has been active in the Latow Photographers Guild, Arts Burlington and the Burlington Art Centre for the last number of years.  Photographic competitions at the club, city, regional and national levels have been met with considerable success.

Major areas of interest are Character Portraits which represent pseudo-documentary perspectives, Abstract interpretations of everyday subjects, Travel photography emphasizing colour and texture of different cultures and the people of these cultures, Old Car Parts which view specific parts of classic or hot rod vehicles as greater than the sum of those parts, and Landscape photography that presents a different point of view.
