Teka Henlon – Jamaican Visual Artist

TEKA HENLON, Edna Manley School Of Visual Arts Interview

 

Here’s another interesting exhibition from Edna Manley College of Visual Arts 2010 graduates. Teka Henlon is a photographer who does so much more than just take pictures with her inner-city campaign “Beyond Obvious.” Her photos are displayed on zinc and board (both have long been staples of building houses in the ghettos of Jamaica), there’s a table set up with dominoes, graffiti on the walls, even a standpipe for water. She truly created the entire experience!

Watch Teka tell us why she chose to approach her final project by getting close to the people she photographed
