  • Acacia Johnson

    National Geographic Photographer
    Acacia Johnson is a photographer, artist, and writer from Alaska, focused on human relationships to the Earth's polar regions. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, Acacia received a Fulbright grant to Canada in 2014, to spend a winter documenting the Inuit’s evolving relationship with their environment on Baffin Island. Since then, she has been increasingly interested in anthropological themes in the Arctic and Antarctica. Johnson’s work has been featured by numerous publications, including digital stories for National Geographic about the Inuit community on Baffin Island, snow algae and sea ice in polar environments, and wildlife on Antarctica’s Deception Island caldera. Acacia has made over 55 expeditions to the polar regions—Greenland, Svalbard, the Canadian Arctic, and Antarctica—frequently lecturing on photography, Arctic indigenous culture, and visual representations of these unique regions. Most recently, Johnson returned to Baffin Island for two months in 2018 for her project Sea Ice Stories.
