Originating from Detroit, Devon Whitmore was exposed to the Center of Creative Studies and the connecting Detroit Institute of Art from an early age. Though unable to hear while wandering through the museum, he sensed Detroit’s cacophony of sounds and imagined music in Diego Rivera’s all-encompassing Detroit Industry fresco murals. Engrossed in all forms of art, producing his own sketches, designs, paintings, and sculptures, Devon ended up realizing photography was his forte—the field of work that would become his career. He earned his BA in photography from Columbia College Chicago. Devon’s photos have appeared in abcNews.com; Chicago, Newcity, Deaf Life, KISSFIST, and Chicago Tribune magazines; Chicago: Heart & Soul of America (Towery); and various other publications. His works have been exhibited at the National Technical Institute of the Deaf, School of Visual Communications Careers Student Honors Show; Columbia College Chicago, Student Honors Show; Oo-La-la Lounge solo exhibit; Gallery 312 group exhibit; and Deaf Way Illinois II Deaf Artists Exhibit. His most recent involvement in the arts was being a juror for National Technical Institute of the Deaf, Dyer Arts Center’s Color to the Cube exhibit.
