Ron Geibert

Wright State Professor Emeritus Ron Geibert (b.1952) worked in the documentary photography tradition his first 20 years, resulting in the 1992 DAI book From the Midwest. Since then he has explored Orwellian issues with installations and computer technology, as well as prints that address the role of printed books in today’s digital world. His works are found in significant collections including the Museum of Modern Art (NYC), the Smithsonian, Library of Congress, Corcoran (Washington, D.C.), the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Center for Creative Photography (Tucson, AZ), the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, and the Bibliothèque Nationale (Paris).

As an author, curator, publisher, and artist he has produced 20 publications and portfolios. Accomplishments of particular merit are his groundbreaking photographic work in color in the 1970s and 1980s, scholarship on the photography by Wilbur and Orville Wright, creation and production of one of the earliest commercially published CD-ROMs of contemporary art photography exhibitions, and an extensive suite of interactive electronic kiosks that speak to private and public issues found in the Information Age.
