- BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: Diane Olthuis, in her short monograph about Johnson, documents as much of his varied experiences in Alaska as she could. Much of his life was spent as a prospector and trapper, yet he was also a devoted and talented amateur photographer, some of whose work was published in various Alaska periodicals. According to Olthuis, "He sold his suitcase of photographs to the owner of the Jockey Club, Aletha Racine." His first camera was a glass plate camera, and in 1928 he bought a Graflex camera with which he photographed Alaska wildlife.
