About the Artist

As a mother of five, Cince Johnston's photography practice explores intimate family narratives alongside street documentary and activist-based storytelling for change. Combining her past studies of Art History at Bishop’s University, Photojournalism at SAIT, and an MFA in Documentary Media at Toronto Metropolitan University, Johnston’s work examines the psychological dynamics of relationships and their inherent complexities in a photographic style that falls somewhere between painting and newspaper reportage.

Johnston has participated in more than 20 group exhibitions from Russia to India to the US, along with four solo exhibitions in Canada. In 2021, she won both Portrait Non-Professional Series and Children Non-Professional Series in the 17th Annual Julia Margaret Cameron Awards. In 2022, she received a Canada Council for the Arts Grant for her project Freddy and Ceydie along with a Penumbra Foundation Risograph Print and Publication Residency for her project this place I call home whispers fragments of secrets to me.
