AlfredCheneyJohnston.com is the leading website on the life, times and artistry of Ziegfeld Follies photographer Alfred Cheney Johnston.
Our mission is to research and share information on this phenomenal photographer’s work and career. Unlike his contemporaries Edward Steichen and Alfred Stieglitz, Cheney Johnston’s work was nearly lost to history. If it wasn’t for his prints surfacing on Ebay nearly 3 decades after his death, his work may never have been rediscovered.
My goal in writing the book “Jazz Age Beauties – The Lost Collection of Ziegfeld Photographer Alfred Cheney Johnston” was to document his artistic contribution to the world of photography. It’s undeniable that his work deserves to be studied and admired by contemporary photographers and collectors alike.
Please join me on this unfolding journey of discovery of Alfred Cheney Johnston’s photography.
