Meet Javohn Oddie

Today we’d like to introduce you to Javohn Oddie.

Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
I have been creating art projects with teams since elementary school. Over the years I have worked with many people doing various art projects. I started off drawing form my mother.

Please tell us about your art.
I do photography. Lifestyle and product photography. I have shot photos since 1994 and I shoot everything. I also do films. Everyone close to me has participated in some form of film I have produced. Close friends call me their Spike Lee. lol

Photography has opened many doors for me and I have experienced some great events and people. My inspiration is in every photo. I feel time is like a fast train you can’t keep up with and can’t get in its way. And when I take a picture, I capture that moment in time. That tree won’t be in that spot next to the car with that bird flying exactly right there above the tree with those clouds in that formation etc. Every picture saves a fleeing moment.

When I shoot, I love to do it outdoors and natural light. I love to feel the world move under my feet as I create challenges to capture different people and things. I am currently working on a new Web gallery as well as a series of photo books.

We often hear from artists that being an artist can be lonely. Any advice for those looking to connect with other artists?
These days it’s great to collaborate with other artist in common with you. Work to create and be strong with your team. I once created a short film with 2 poets a dancer a model a body painter a music producer and editor. It created a bond between us that has lasted for years.

How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
I currently have an Instagram @jko_odd and https://www.behance.net/jkodd
