American artist Linka Odom creates immersive photo light box installations using wood, metal and backlit photo prints, normally hung in outdoor settings, including found trees to suspend her installations from. Odom’s interest in photography stems from a childhood filled with creek walking and exploration. Her images explore our world, with a focus on unique cultures and the surreal. Ms. Odom’s work is driven to influence a culture of acceptance, encouraging the viewer to reflect and ultimately gain insight on the interconnection amongst all things. Ms. Odom has earned both an M.A. in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography from the Univ. of the Arts, London College of Communication and a B.F.A. in Photography from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. Linka is currently based in New Orleans, LA.
