Matt Johnston is a visual practitioner, educator and researcher based at Coventry University where he is an Assistant Professor in photography and leads the MA Photography programme. For the last decade, his research and visual practice has been concerned with the post-millennium situation of the contemporary photobook, how the medium has become central to a small but dedicated ecology, and how it may become better equipped to engage new readerships. He completed his PhD at the University for the Creative Arts in 2020 and in 2021 his book Photobooks & was published by Onomatopee. Between 2009-2023 Johnston ran the worldwide reading initiative The Photobook Club which featured exhibitions, community meetings, festivals and travelling book projects.
