LightSource is pleased to present:

JIMON, A show of photographs by Taylor Kay Johnson.

Opening Reception: February 21st 5–7pm

The show will run through March 21st.

“When I’m on the court, I just feel free.” Thirteen year old Jimon Campbell plays for the Oakland Soldiers and attends Bret Harte Middle School in Oakland, California. He says he was introduced to basketball by his father, and ever since he has fallen in love with the game.

The photographs of Jimon tell a story of what it means to love oneself. Teenagers have the ability to remain open to ideas and exploration, maintain dedication to a dream, and find joy in their passions more easily than adults. Jimon’s dreams are an expression of what true happiness and potential can create.

Taylor Kay Johnson is a photographer living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her work has recently been exhibited at the Aperture Foundation gallery in New York, presented by The California Sunday Magazine’s first all photography issue and exhibition, “At Home: In The American West.” Her first book,Kings, published by D3i Press in 2018, follows the lives of teenage boxers in Oakland, California.
