"The last ten years I have been working as a freelance photojournalist based in Los Angeles. Los Angeles Times was my starting place and today I work for newspapers and news magazines from around the world. I photographed on a project for Klimahaus Museum in Bremerhaven, Germany, and I look forward to its opening in March 2009. Between paying work I do personal projects. My most recent one was a multimedia project on the dowry system in India.
I choose photographs that show some of the things that I love to photograph; political events and people from different cultures." - Ann Johansson
