Young lensman featured in Time

Victoria photographer Devin Tepleski’s pictures from Ghana were recently published in Time Magazine.

Victoria native Devin Tepleski has found a place in the international world of photography.

The University of Victoria anthropology student was featured in the News last summer when he showed a photo exhibit at Luz Gallery on Oak Bay Avenue.

Last week, his photos led Time Magazine’s photo essay page, along with a writeup about his work.

Tepleski, 24, shot his Sena photographs while working in Ghana.

The village in which he was working was under threat of being wiped out by flooding if a proposal to dam the nearby Black Volta River was approved.
