Photogenus features works of international artists that challenge traditional notions of photographic production, display, and discourse. The exhibition explores contemporary photography in a brief but arduous history of crisis and redefinition. These works investigate the circumstance of lens-based media in a world of digital ubiquity and the constant interaction and feedback that follow. Understanding our condition as one of constant technological mediation, and the photograph as a means of mediation, they denote a shift in the photograph from an idea of the image as a framer of reality toward a reflexive, self-referential, and dynamic means of expression. Photogenus synthesizes an ever-expanding and constantly changing field of inquiry. As a survey of moments in photography, Photogenus captures shifting paradigms of viewership, authorship, and value. Exhibiting artists are John Eldrot, Nicole Hametner, Bill Sullivan, Mathieu Bernard, Charles Negre, Gael Odilon Paccard, Josue Rauscher, Michael Wolf, Paul Destieu, Anthony Lepore, Helmut Smits, Corinne Vionnet, Florian Freier, Travess Smalley, John Houck, Sebastian Verdon, Clement Valla, Irena Knezevic, and Brian Khek.

The Dorothy W. and C. Lawson Reed, Jr. gallery serves a broad and diverse audience drawn from students, faculty, and staff of the University of Cincinnati, and the wider Cincinnati community. Host to exhibitions that focus on the fields of study associated with the College of DAAP, the gallery showcases a comprehensive scope of current work in these disciplines to enrich the exposure of students to work produced elsewhere.
