Artist of the Week: Kelsey Halliday Johnson

Name and Year: Kelsey Halliday Johnson Hometown: Haddonfield, NJ Degree: Masters in Fine Arts (interdisciplinary) and certificate in Landscape Studies Medium of Choice: Photography, Drawing, Painting Website: www.kelseyhalliday.com *Kelsey is teaching Photo I in the spring.* Street: You say most of your work is “place_oriented.” What does that mean to you, and what are some examples of projects? Kelsey Halliday Johnson: Each body of work I make situates itself within a given site (historical or literal) and becomes a kind of investigation of the cultural or social histories that lie within the landscape or particular place. I entered my undergraduate degree planning to major in geosciences, so the physical environment has always been a sincere interest of mine.
