Todd Stewart began his career as a photographer working for advertising and design clients in Columbus, OH and Atlanta, GA. He is an Assistant Professor of Photography and Digital Imaging at the University of Oklahoma.

For many years Mr. Stewart's concerns as an artist have centered on the relationships between history, myth, and culture. His work has included a growing exploration of the American landscape and a continuing examination of the question: Does place hold memory?

Stewart recently completed work on the book Placing Memory: A Photographic Exploration of Japanese American Internment, a contemporary examination of the ten Japanese-American World War II internment camps.

Mr. Stewart's photographs have been exhibited widely throughout the United States, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Photographic Arts and publications such as Aperture and New York Times Magazine.
