Downtown 2019: Clifton Henri

Clifton’s Story

Clifton Henri is an award-winning photographer and visual artist from Chicago. He began his professional career as an art director for a boutique advertising agency and transitioned into becoming a full-time independent artist. Henri’s work is rooted in identity, under representation, and self-declaration. He visually illustrates and narrates the African diaspora using personal experiences and feelings as fuel for his portraits. Henri’s photography has taken him on a path of defining moments. His journey has helped him define his place in the world and find a stance on how he wants to be seen. Influenced by imagery from the Civil Rights Movement and the Harlem Renaissance eras, Henri’s photographs are based on personal and shared experiences of humanity. With his art, Henri challenges his viewers to find themselves, but also the poetry within the photograph.
