Sundays are pretty dull around Dodd’s Corner. Nothing is open. I headed down to my office with a thermos of coffee. On the way I picked up a Sunday Enquirer at the corner.
I sat at my desk, drank my coffee, and read the paper. It was all war news; some was good, some bad. The sports page was all about the Cincinnati Reds, once again, some good and some bad. I was finishing the last of my coffee when Marge Baker turned up, still dressed for mass at St. Clarisa’s. “Corky, I want to hire you to find out what really happened to my father,” she said.
One of my jokes had backfired. I had a mail-order diploma from the Ace Detective Academy, and when I was having the windows of my insurance agency lettered, I asked the sign painter to add “PRIVATE INVESTIGATIONS” at the bottom of the glass. No one had ever even mentioned it until Marge showed up at my door... More Info »

He revisited Findlay Market 42 years later, in 2008 to capture the similarities and changes time has brought to the landmark market. More Info »

Pigs as Architectural Details?
I Thought Pigs Could Fly pays homage to the breadth, beauty and sometimes irreverent Queen City.
This photographic sketchbook captures just a tiny bit of the figurative and illustrative artwork seen throughout the building styles of the late 1800s and early 1900s on buildings in Cincinnati.
These treasures dot the city’s scenic architectural landscape, accenting Cincinnati’s rolling hills and winding streets and add even more character to an already diverse cultural landscape. More Info »

“One cubed? What the h--- does that mean?” It stands for one moment, one click, one shot. It’s all about opportunity, fine details, and the product. It means that there are a million things going on at once, but there’s only one image people will see and there’s not much you can do about it and that’s scary and tiring. Our advice?
Just take the photo. More Info »
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”
Every artist has played with this cliche, including the screenwriters of The Twilight Zone, but nobody can answer why beauty happens this way.
Some people love to see sunshine glistening off the green leaves in springtime. Others prefer the way that same sun slants across the city, catching different prisms of chrome and steel. What about the human form with its twists and turns? Almost everyone will humorously tell you that they have too many bulges and not enough dips. Why hate your body? Without it, you wouldn’t get very far. More Info »
Welcome to the pages of another successful gallery exhibition! These photos are so different from each other that you’ll find
something you’ll enjoy, although that’s not the point.
The purpose of art is expression. It’s digging up the depths of the self. We hope that you will find a state of being in these photos with which you agree or empathize. If not today, look again tomorrow and the next day. If you keep looking, you will see more and more in each photo. Spend some time with each individual one. Bon voyage! More Info »
Photographer Ronald L. Hartnagel has spent the better part of the last 35 years searching for and documenting Pre-Victorian homes.
This collection is selected from the thousands of photos taken during that time and represents both the simple beauty and timelessness that these homes bring to our residential and rural landscapes.
The influence and revival of elements of the Pre-Victorian style can be seen in home designs with increasing frequency over the last 50 years.
With a foreword by Robert W.M. Laughlin, author of Kentucky’s Covered Bridges, this book represents a pivotal documentation of America’s vanishing history. More Info »
Over the years, Price Hill, perhaps more than any other neighborhood in the Queen City, has been home to a large number of saloons. Germans, Irish, and other nationalities found places to congregate and talk about the news of the day while drinking beer.
The ownership of these saloons was often passed down from generation to generation. That was also the case for those who frequented these establishments—sons following in their fathers’ footsteps to the nearest welcoming watering hole. More Info »
Visitors to the Price Hill Historical Society and Museum often ask about one resident who made his home in Price Hill for less than five years. But what a home it was! Almost a century after George Remus ran one of the most extensive bootlegging operations in the country from Cincinnati’s west side, his name still has the ability to conjure up images of a gilt-edged mansion with a sleek modern swimming pool and other Jazz Age excesses.
Why is the story of George Remus so fascinating? He used legal loopholes in the Volstead Act to make a fortune selling whiskey during Prohibition, he was ruthless and acted swiftly to protect his own interests, but he was widely known as a generous man who never forgot a friend or a favor, and he really knew how to throw a party. George Remus, for a few golden years, lived Gatsby’s dream—he was the “King of the Bootleggers.” More Info »

Another year came (and went) at RoHo and we’re already halfway through 2011. How the time flies! Here’s a (very) belated Happy New Year to everyone.
Your Best Shot 2010 is no less a theater of the absurd, the intellectual, and the grounded as any other show. We again received incredible art and enjoyed each other’s company with food, wine, and music.
Let us take the time to not only look at the wonderful art, but to really reflect on it.
What do we see in each photograph? Who do we see?
Can we see our reflection?
Can we feel our heartbeat?
Let us cast ourselves into another artist’s world and remind ourselves that anything is possible through the imagination.
Welcome, Friends. More Info »
