One Hundred Portfolios.
Curated by Professor Ronald Geibert.
Wright State University, Dayton, OH, 2006.
The Wright State University Art Galleries and Department of Art and Art History Professor Ronald Geibert have a rich history of using multimedia to inform audiences about the arts. In 1994, Geibert's The New Street Photography was among the earliest CD-ROM publications about photography. As a free-lance producer, Geibert and digital EDITIONS Dayton published a CD-ROM on the Farm Security Administration Period, one that examined competition among youth in the United States and Japan, and completed commissions to design and produce the CD-ROMs Women in Documentary Photography 2000 for the Springfield Museum of Art and The Democratic Print for Wright State.
Perhaps the most significant undertakings, though, have been the Eastman Kodak sponsored Photography in the 1990s: Fifty Portfolios and this current DVD-ROM Photography Now: One Hundred Portfolios. Each was the result of works submitted from around the world - the first culled from submissions by 500 artists from 30 countries and the second from nearly 1,300 photographers representing 60 countries. Each made use of panels comprised of distinguished curators. Serving on the panel with Professor Geibert for Photography Now were Kathleen Ewing, Kathleen Ewing Gallery; Shino Kuraishi, Curator, Yokohama Museum of Art; Tina Schelhorn, Galerie Lichtblick; and Rod Slemmons, Director, Museum of Contemporary Photography.
Photography Now includes one DVD-ROM featuring one hundred portfolios by contemporary photographers as well as three bonus CD-ROMS:

Photography in the 1990s: Fifty Portfolios
