PhotOH: Photographers in the Heartland
This photographic exploration is co-curated by Miami University Art Museum Curator of Exhibitions Jason E. Shaiman and Cincinnati-based independent curator William Messer. PhotOH is an invitational exhibition surveying the work of photographers from across the state of Ohio in accord with the 2022 FotoFocus Biennial theme, World Record. Of the 75 photographers who submitted in response to an invitation, 27 were selected for inclusion. The exhibition features 52 photographs, including 2 works from 25 photographers and 2 from a collaboration. The selected work presents a considerable range of photographic practices, styles, and subject matter. It is the goal of the PhotOH curators to expose the Miami University community and the broader FotoFocus audience to a geographically diverse survey of photographers working in Ohio. PhotOH will also be a visited venue by the Oracle XL meetings of international photography curators taking place in Cincinnati and at the nearby Hueston Woods Lodge & Conference Center.
