Cynthia Johnston is a Canadian photographer whose passions for trekking and cycling to remote corners of the earth, exploring diverse cultures, and meeting people from every walk of life have taken her around the globe on several occasions.
A psychotherapist specializing in women's issues and eating disorders, Cynthia left the field for a few years to pursue her interest in photography and international health and human rights. She spent several months in Nepal conducting research on the cross-border trafficking of South Asian girls into the sex trade, an issue that initially drew her attention when she visited the UAE as a teenager.
Having established a following as a photographer of foreign peoples, places and doors, Cynthia continues to sell her work through her website and the occasional show. She is now living in Toronto and is working as a psychotherapist and consultant in private practice.
