In August, SOC alumnus Jason Miccolo Johnson, a photographer whose work has appeared in 30 books and numerous magazines and newspapers, will join the Journalism and Mass Communications faculty at Savannah State University for the 2015-2016 academic year. Wanda Lloyd, department chair, says he will teach photojournalism and commercial photography. Since 1990, Johnson has been the official annual convention photographer for the National Association of Black Journalists. He is author of Soul Sanctuary: Images of the African American Worship Experience. Jason’s photo exhibit “Yours Naturally: Beauty that Grows on You” was featured at the School of Communications Alumni Reception in October 2014, at a Washington, D.C. Library in May,  and at Savannah State among its many exhibitions. (SOURCE: Portions of this post, edited from Richard Prince’s Journal-isms.)
