Hugh Johnson

Hugh’s passion for making the everyday normal appear beautiful allows his work to be both familiar and foreign. His portfolio celebrates simple combinations that work without the need to dress them up or over elaborate.

Hugh’s work has been selected for special attention by George Rodger the founder of Magnum. He’s become a numerous winner of International photography awards such as the Grand Award at the International Advertising Festival in New York, Gold and Silver medals at Art Directors Club, AOP Awards, D&AD Awards & the annual Campaign Awards. He was Fortnum & Mason Photographer of the Year in 2019 and his work is regularly included in the Pink Lady Food Photography Finals. Hugh was the only working British photographer whose pictures were selected for the V&A exhibition ‘Photography Now’.

Hugh has recently received an Outstanding Achievement Award at The International Color Awards 2021 being voted winner of the professional food category.
