    Anthropologie fans can get a closeup look at buyer Keith Johnson's famously good taste in his new exhibition "Past Ports," which showcases personal images and videos taken during his travels. The exhiition is up at Anthropologie's flagship store and gallery in Rockefeller Center.

    Even if you didn't see Johnson in the Sundance Channel's touted documentary, "Man Shops Globe," you're almost certainly familiar with his eclectic sensibility.

    In some ways, Johnson's eye for the unusual has shaped the identity of the retailer itself. Many of the brand's quirky accessories and home goods are sourced on Johnson's trips around the world.

    Open through July, Johnson's new exhibit focuses less on trinkets than on personal videos and photographs, giving the show a more immersive quality than a simple installation of souvenirs.

    One of Johnson's favorite aspects of the exhibit, WWD reports, is a video shot with friend and travel buddy Anna Sui which depicts a man spinning in dervish robes. 

    If you feel compelled to bring even more of Johnson's exceptional taste into your home (we're betting there's at least one thing from Anthropologie tucked away in your apartment already), 10 limited-edition prints will be available to buy for $98, with proceeds benefitting the Pennsylvania SPCA.

    "Past Ports: Keith Johnson Photography." Through July. Anthropologie, 50 Rockefeller Plaza. 212-246-0386
