Evan G. Schneider

My background includes a Masters degree in Visual Anthropology and 17 years experience as Chief Photographer at the Oregon Historical Society. During this time, I worked with historic images and photography to explore, document and preserve cultural objects and fragile documents.

In my early years, my father inspired me when using photography to document Cameroonian traditions and places during the 1950s. I returned to Cameroon after earning a BFA in photography, completed a tour with the Peace Corps, and taught photography in Kano, Nigeria.
