Johanna Brannan Lowe
Born at home in London, a happy, inquisitive child. When not playing dress up in thrift store clothes, Johanna entertained herself with cooking and a somewhat obsessive delight in the organization of objects.
Through vague meanderings and many adventures Johanna started out professional life in London as a photographer.
Moving to America in 2000, Johanna assisted at a huge catalogue studio learning digital. She moved from there to smaller more independent studios, learning but all the while feeling she was swimming against her own tide.
Then her father died. Johanna left Chicago and moved to small town Michigan, opened a shop selling vintage and designer clothing, left photography altogether. In quiet moments she began to think again about her talent for and love of photography. There was one commercial photo studio in town. Going to see them with a small portfolio she said, "I'm a stylist, can you give me some work?"
People move through life not always paying attention at the time to what drives them. It sometimes takes a sideways glance to realize who we are.
Johanna also has an online store selling vintage culinary objects. It's called Martyn George, named after her father and can be found at http://martyngeorge.com
