Tonika Johnson is a visual artist/photographer from Chicago’s South Side Englewood neighborhood. She was featured in Chicago Magazine as a 2017 Chicagoan of the Year for her photography of Englewood’s everyday beauty, which countered pervasive media coverage of poverty and crime. In early 2018, her “Everyday Englewood” photography was featured in an exhibit at Loyola University’s Museum of Art (LUMA). Her current project, Folded Map, was also exhibited at LUMA in 2018 from July through October. The project visually investigates disparities among Chicago residents while simultaneously bringing them together to have a conversation.
