Born in 1960, Richard Koenig received his BFA from Pratt Institute. In 1998 he received his MFA from Indiana University and began teaching art and photography courses at Kalamazoo College, Michigan.
His work, Photographic Prevarications, was shown in six one-person exhibits in as many years, between 2007 and 2012. In the summer of 2010 he began working on a long-term documentary project called Contemporary Views Along the First Transcontinental Railroad.
Thus far in 2014 one article of this new work, Contemporary Views, has been published--in the journal of the Union Pacific Historical Society. Another one is forthcoming--in the journal of the National Railway Historical Society. In February of 2015, Contemporary Views will be on exhibit at Laramie County Community College, in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
Richard's work is available through Pictura Gallery, Bloomington, Indiana.
Additional works are available through Editions Fawbush, New York.
