Interior designer turned photographer Richard Johnson captures a fishing hut portrait series that is not only visually stunning but also a study of temporary architecture. With a past background in retail design, Johnson is no stranger to design projects that marry aesthetics with function.

Though fishing hut architecture may not seem complex at first glance, Richard Johnson's image series proves otherwise while highlighting the unique elements of each structure that he captures.

This series explores fishing huts in Quebec and Newfoundland while examining what aesthetic and structural properties are native to each region. In addition to capturing colorful and unique fishing hut facades, Johnson also photographs the structural details of each shelter. Ultimately, this series compares the similarities between rustic shelters while comparing similar examples to contemporary fishing hut projects.
