John Goto (born 1949 Stockport, England) is a British photographic artist. His work addresses a range of historical, cultural and socio-political subject areas, often using a satirical approach.
Goto's first one-man exhibition, Goto, Photographs 1971-81, was held at the Photographer's Gallery in London in 1981. Other solo shows include Terezin, at the Raab Gallery, Berlin, in 1988; The Scar, Manchester City Museum and Art Gallery, 1993; The Commissar of Space, MOMA, Oxford, 1998; Loss of Face, Tate Britain, London, 2002; High Summer, The British Academy, London, 2005; and Dreams of Jelly Roll, Freud Museum, London, 2012.
Gtoto's books include Ukadia, published to coincide with a solo exhibition at Djanogly Art Gallery, Nottingham, 2003, and Lovers’ Rock, which is a series of portraits made in 1977 by Goto of young British Afro-Caribbeans.
