Photography has a long tradition at The Ohio State University dating back to the 1890s. The Photography Area is committed to a continuous exploration and redefinition of what it means to use photography as a personal and critical endeavor. Part of the strength of our program comes from being part of a large university community. We encourage cross-fertilization not only with other areas in the Department of Art, but also with areas outside the department.
