Location: Minneapolis, Minnesota, and www.johnchristenson.com.
Duration: Four years.
Staff: Me, my rep Amanda Grace and a group of freelancers that I call on for specific jobs.
Education: School of Communication Arts, Minneapolis.
Cultural Influences: Architecture, furniture design—especially Scandinavian designers, airports, cheap morels and anything with good symmetry and character.
Environment: My studio is in downtown Minneapolis with lots of window light, but much of my work is shot on location so I enjoy finding beauty in the sometimes not so beautiful.
Philosophy: Everything is interesting, it just depends on how you perceive it.
