About Johanna DeGerlia

Johanna is a photographer/artist raised in rural upstate New York, now living in Denver and southern Colorado.  She has lived in and extensively traveled through the Americas.

Artist’s Statement

For me, photography is as much about desire as it is about memory….  My photos tell you more about me than anything I could say here. I like to view things askance as in averted vision. I consider myself an artist rather than a photographer but I have had to learn cameras as a means to an end – the cameras have taught me to see in new ways. I like imagery that I can hear: thick heels on an old hardwood floor or tiny, rhythmic clicking sounds of old time machinery and camera shutters and heavy old buildings of the early 20th century like the libraries and schools with enormous double hung windows I grew up with in rural upstate New York. I prefer ambient light coming and going – I rarely use flash.
