Authors

Thomas R. Schiff studied photography under Clarence White, Jr. and Arnold Gassan while earning a BBA degree from Ohio University in 1970. Schiff began experimenting with panoramic photography in the mid-1980s, making use of a Hulcherama 360 panoramic camera. He has published eight previous books: Panoramic Cincinnati (2003), Panoramic Ohio (2002), Panoramic Parks (2005), Vegas 360 (2008), Wright Panorama (2010), Prospect (2012), Columbus, Indiana: Midwestern Modernist Mecca, and The Library Book (2017). Schiff helped establish Images Center in Cincinnati in 1980, and he is the founder of FotoFocus, a lens-based art biennial held in Cincinnati.
