Wittenberg University Assistant Professor of Art Daniel McInnis’ fundraising exhibit Battleground raised more than $400 dollars for Project Woman, a Springfield organization created to aid victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.Following the close of the exhibit, McInnis presented Laura Baxter, Director of Project Woman, with a $440 check and a photograph from the show.Battleground, a compilation of photographs taken using McInnis’ iPhone, “documents glimpses of an American state in transition, a landscape mixed with both troubling anxiety and healthy pride.”McInnis has taught photographic practice and history at the School of Visual Arts in New York, John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York, The American University in Dubai, and Ithaca College. His work has been published by Saint Lucy, Dodho Magazine as a Featured Photographer, and Battleground, a self-published monograph by Apple Books. McInnis was a 2012 Competition Winner for Photo Review and a finalist in the PhotoPlace Open 2012 Catalog by Blurb Book.
