2015-2016 GVS/VisCom Photojournalism Fellow
Keith Rutowski is the 2015-16 Photojournalism Fellow for the George V. Voinovich School of Leadership & Public Affairs at Ohio University.
Keith was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, and studied magazine/narrative nonfiction journalism as an undergraduate at the University of Cincinnati. He then worked for a few years as a freelance editorial researcher, fact-checking articles for National Geographic Digital Media, Smithsonian Magazine, and others before beginning to focus on visual storytelling. This September, he will begin his second year in the Master’s program at Ohio University’s School of Visual Communication, where he studies photography and video production. His passion in all mediums is to explore and reflect elements of the human condition. He is particularly interested in the ways in which history and traditions are maintained or abandoned in contemporary society, how humanity shapes and is shaped by the natural world, and the concept of home.
