Photography is one of the many mediums that Teddy Mitchener uses to express his creativity. A graduate of The Duke Ellington School of the Arts, Teddy credits the institution for having instilled in him the love of other art forms such as plaster and stone sculpting, woodwork, pencil drawing and painting.
‘Disappearing Africa’ has been inspired by a photoshoot of an ethnographic collection of African masks in Tanzania. Teddy merges the various mediums to recreate African masks on faces of models that are a statement of the need to preserve the cultural identity of the African people and to fight cultural erosion, in an increasingly homogeneous world.
