Sue Jaye Johnson’s work straddles the fields of journalism, art, activism, and technology. She co-founded Picture Projects in 1995 as a way to explore the intersection of photography and new media. Dubbed by Photo Insider “the gold standard in interactive documentary,” Picture Projects’ most well-known work, 360degrees.org and SonicMemorial.org received numerous awards including a Peabody Award, the Online News Association’s award for Best Use of Multimedia, the National Press Club Award, the Batten Award for Innovation, as well as a Webby Award. After leaving Picture Projects in 2003, Johnson moved to South Africa where she co-produced Mandela: An Audio History for National Public Radio and co-founded Iliso Labantu, a collective of township-based photographers who now earn a living by selling their work internationally. She is adjunct faculty at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism and has taught at Harvard University, New York University and conducted workshops on multimedia storytelling in Europe, Mexico, and the U.S.
