Often drawing on memory and emotion, Crystal Tursich's diaristic photographs hover between staged self-portraits and constructed moments. Recently, her work has been exhibited at the Dayton Society of Artists Project Space, the Defiance College Women's Commission Gallery, and 934 Gallery. Her work has also been included in many group exhibitions throughout Ohio and the midwest. In 2019, Tursich was the recipient of the EMERGE Fellowship Award from Midwest Center for Photography.
