Evan Snode (b. 1994) obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Photography from The University of Akron in 2017. Living within a concrete infrastructure for over seven years, the rural Ohio landscape which he grew up in, serves not only as subject matter, but also as an outlet from the city. His work focuses on describing place through his interactions with the environment he finds himself in. With his work, he was awarded the Olson Photography Scholarship twice by The University of Akron, Myers School of Art, as well as a Studio Art Scholarship. He was also awarded the Mervyn F. Danison Memorial Scholarship Award. Evan has also worked with businesses to produce images for promotional advertisements and a private collection.
