Photographer & Englewood Activist


Current Exhibition

On view at LUMA from July 3 – October 20, 2018, Tonika Lewis Johnson’s ongoing Folded Map project connects residents who live at corresponding addresses in the North and South Side neighborhoods of Chicago. By documenting architectural aspects of the neighborhoods and conversations between residents, Lewis Johnson demonstrates how a city of renowned institutions and robust tourism is also a city that struggles with issues of racial inequality and segregation.

Tonika Johnson’s images of Englewood life have made its way to a museum for the first time! Selections from her two Englewood-based projects, "From the INside," and "Everyday Rituals," are currently on exhibition at Loyola University Museum of Art downtown at 820 N. Michigan Ave. from February to June 2nd.
