Transience the film (42'19) has also been completed, produced with Fabiola Simonetti and details of a premiere and book launch will appear here shortly.

The Love began on February 14, 2015 as a daily post on Facebook and then later via Instagram with a nod to something positive, something beautiful, or at the very least, just something. An exhibition without the costs. Showcasing new and past work, the photographs are a reflection of these times, just as a song written 30 years ago can hold significance for us at any given moment, such is the value and meaning of art. The Love, suggestive of a more positive approach to journalism (think the wonderful Positive News) while also referencing Arthur Lee's late '60s Californian idealism, continues today, even though like many a former daily, local newspaper, it's become less frequent over time. Forever changes but love stories play on and on.    

Don't You Want to be Free? was exhibited at Lauderdale House in London in April and May of 2013. The show consisted of 30 photographs (on view here) from the project hung in the Lower Gallery and Entrance Hall of the house. During the opening and closing parties, screenings of Don't You Want to be Free? (47'11) were shown. The film, produced again with Fabiola Simonetti, consists of work shot between 2008 and 2012, with 527 photographs in all and twelve songs completing the soundtrack.

It has often been my dream was an intermediary body of work, including photographs from both God knows how I adore life and Those eyes are enough to take this heart of mine, as well as new material. It was exhibited in a pop-up shop named J. Green & Son on Woburn Walk in Bloomsbury, central London, obtained with the help of Camden Council for one month in late 2010 and early 2011. Opening and closing parties were held along with two concerts and a sixth form photography workshop, as well as raising money for Card Aid.

In 2012 It has often been my dream travelled to Trementina Artes in Bogota, Colombia, for a six-week residency where a new narrative was created. The photographs featured here amount to all images that were printed and exhibited in either the London or Bogota shows. A new film, Heart & Soul, was premiered in Bogota, along with screenings of films God knows how I adore life and Those eyes are enough to take this heart of mine, detailed below.

Heart & Soul (6'04), is a collection of 46 photographs, laid over Joy Division's Heart And Soul, of a journey from The End, in every sense, coming after the final night of The End nightclub in London and of the resulting trip home. It was produced with the help of both Ish Kalia and Fabiola Simonetti.

God knows how I adore life is Green's second album, completed in 2008 and premiered at Red Dot Art Fair at The Radisson Edwardian Grafton Hotel in London. Of the 360 photographs that comprise the work, 208 are displayed here. For the first time the film, both in its entirety and also chapter by chapter, can now be viewed on this website. The film was originally produced with Steve Chawner in 2007 and remixed in 2015 with Fabiola Simonetti.

Those eyes are enough to take this heart of mine is the photographer's first major work and was premiered in 2007 at the Frontline Club in London. Of the 328 photographs that make up this work, 80 are presented here. The film (40'08), was produced in 2007 with Steve Chawner and again remixed in 2015 with Fabiola Simonetti. Uploaded here again for the first time is the 4'00 minute promo of the work.

All of the above works, other than It has often been my dream, are, in their fullest form, films of still photography mixed over soundtracks curated by the artist, with all five projects available as installation pieces for hire. All are also available as exhibitions of prints. The copyright for all songs remains with their respective creators or third parties.

In addition, Johnny Green has been djing since 1994 and a radio show with Ish Kalia called Alva Park on Leeds Student Radio (LSR). Since 2000 to the present day, Green has continued to dj across London, either under the moniker Alva Park (in particular for 10 years at The Foundry with Kalia) or with Joe Downie and nights Baby Slow Down, Only Love Can Break Your Heart and Space/Deep Disco. Venues have included Servant Jazz Quarters, Dalston Social, The Stags Head, The Ivy House, Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), The Foundry, Dalston Project, Trafik, Great Eastern Hotel, Dust, Paradise, Kiss The Sky, Clerkenwell House, The Rose, Southwark Tavern, The Well, Baroque and El Dorado.
