Vincent Johnson lives and works in Los Angeles. His photographic work has been exhibited at the P.S. 1. Museum, the SK Stiftung, Cologne, the Santa Monica Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, Center on Contemporary Art, Seattle, the Studio Museum in Harlem, and the Adamski Gallery of Contemporary Art, Aachen, Locust Projects and Another Year in LA. His photographic work delves in architecture as fantasy, from the vernacular and domestic architecture of Los Angeles to that found in the Western and Eastern United States.

Johnson's work has been exhibited in a number of art fairs, including Aqua Art Miami, the Armory Show, NOVA Art Fair Chicago, Scope New York, Scope Hamptons, the Affair at the Jupiter Hotel, Portland. 

Future exhibitions include a large-scale sculptural installation based on Cold War Civil Air Defense artifacts, for LAXART, and, in an artist group project, the simulation of Constantin Brancusi's monumental Endless Column crashing though the gallery space of the Studio Museum in Harlem, for the project entitled The Philosophy of Time Travel. Johnson received his MFA from Art Center College of Design in 1997. He studied with Mike Kelly, Jack Goldstein and Stephen Prina. He is a 2005 Creative Capital Grantee, and was nominated for the Baum: An Emerging American Photographer's Award in 2004. Upcoming 2007 group exhibitions include Informal Architecture, Plug In Gallery, Winnepeg and Banff Centre, Canada, curated by Anthony Kiendl, and Nothing Moments: A Collaborative Project in Art, Literature and Design: Angstrom Gallery and MOCA at the Pacific Design Center, Los Angeles, California, and Constitutional Democracy, curated by Linda Pollack in 2008.
