Bio

Todd Stewart began his career as photographer more than twenty-five years ago working for advertising and design clients in Columbus, Ohio and Atlanta, Georgia. As an artist and educator, his research and creative concerns center on the cultural landscape and focus particularly on intersections of history, myth, time, and perception. In recent years Stewart’s practice has increasingly become interdisciplinary in nature, utilizing a diverse set of strategies for both active observation and representation.

Stewart is the author of two books: Placing Memory: A Photographic Exploration of Japanese American Internment (2008) and Picher, Oklahoma, Catastrophe, Memory, and Trauma (2016) with co-author Dr. Alison Fields. His photographs have been exhibited widely throughout the United States, recognized by museum curators at the The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Museum of Photographic Arts, Santa Diego; and publication editors including those from Aperture and the New York Times Magazine.

Todd Stewart is Associate Professor of Art, Technology, and Culture at the University of Oklahoma where he teaches courses in photography and imaging. Prior to joining the School of Visual Arts at OU in 2004, Stewart received a BFA from Ohio University and an MFA from Indiana University.
