Picturing the world

Travel the world through these International Photography Exhibition photos.

With a pool of potential entrants in the hundreds of thousands spread across the globe, it’s no surprise the Office of International Affairs’ annual International Photography Exhibition draws some stiff competition. An exhibition of images from the 2017 competition featured 40 images taken in 26 countries by 35 Ohio State students, staff, faculty and alumni.

Best in Show this time around went to Steven Hirsch ’83, ’87 MD, who captured this dramatic photograph of a “waterfall cave” beneath 60 feet of ice in southern Iceland. “Photography and world travel are my passions,” says Hirsch, who toured Iceland with his wife, Sheila Marx Hirsch ’84, and friends.

Inspired to put your own photography skills in the mix? You have a few months to find the perfect frame: The Office of International Affairs' 18th annual International Photography Competition opens on Sept. 1, 2018.
