|Glenn Hartong lives in Springfield Township.
Glenn, who jokes that he earned a PhD from the School of Hard Knocks, worked as a restaurant and food-service manager, a bus driver and a security officer before discovering photography.
He freelanced for the Enquirer in the 1980s, joining the paper's staff in 1991.
Among his favorite projects: Operation Smile in Vietnam; Sarajevo and Tuzla, Bosnia, in 1996. His work will be showcased at the Fire Museum in spring 1999 and in a book for the Cincinnati Fire Division's 150th anniversary in 2003.
He says he strives for the truthful representation of the key moments, both happy and sad, in people's lives. Also important is the constant pursuit of spot news, because it best represents our daily struggle.
