The Ohio Arts Council's Riffe Gallery will present Photography's Back to the Future from May 2 - July 7, 2013
Curated by Catherine Evans, the William and Sarah Ross Soter Curator of Photography at the Columbus Museum of Art, Photography's Back to the Future showcases 10 contemporary artists who illustrate the variety and complexity of the medium by using everything from the earliest photographic processes to the latest digital technologies.

Griffith, Columbus; Lori Kella, Cleveland; Tracy Longley-Cook, Dayton; Rachel Girard Reisert, Cincinnati; Francis Schanberger, Dayton; Jordan Tate, Cincinnati; Garie Waltzer, Cleveland Heights; Janelle Young, Dayton; and Christine Zuercher, Dayton.
