Barbara Houghton

Emeritus Professor of Art/Photography





To quote out of context is the

essence of the photographer's craft.

- John Szarkowski





I retired from teaching May 2015 after a 41 year career!


I began in 1974 in Denver at

Metropolitan State University,

then came to NKU in 1992 as chair of Art

and photography professor.


Spending time with students and watching them develop their own authentic

voice was my reason for loving my teaching job. At the end of the last

semester, I told students that now we were becoming

friends and colleagues rather than teacher and students.


We now have the best of both worlds!
