About Todd Hoover:
 
Todd Hoover (Two Together) received a B.S. degree in Art Education from Indiana University, Bloomington, in 1968, and an M.F.A. from the University of Notre Dame in 1973. He taught drawing and photography classes at James Whitcomb Riley High School, South Bend, Indiana, and photography at Indiana University, South Bend Campus. In 1999, he received a Lilly Endowment Education Grant for the study of non-silver photography.
 

Hoover has a strong exhibition history in juried art shows and has had several one-man shows. His one-man shows include the South Bend Museum of Art; the Northern Indiana Artist Association Gallery, Hammond, Indiana; Indiana University, South Bend Campus; St. Mary's College, Notre Dame, Indiana; Mount Mercy University, Cedar Rapids, Iowa; and the Michiana Jewish Federation, South Bend, Indiana.
 
In 2010, Hoover switched from film photography to digital photography. Initially, going from darkroom silver photography to digital computer printed photography was an extremely difficult transition for him after making photos in his darkroom for so many years. In 2011 Hoover started a series of photographs he called "Small to Big." He photographed miniature toys and figurines and then greatly enlarged these images. At the end of 2013, Hoover reexamined a series of Bird Drawings that he completed in the 80's. He started to collage strips from his paint-by-number painting collection (circa:1950's), and then he re-photographed them. In 2014 he went back into the darkroom to make "Bird Photograms."

Hoover found that he still loved the magic of darkroom photography. Also during this period, he started a series of photographs that he calls "Two Together." In these photos he explores the relationship of two visuals that he makes into one photo.
