about

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 earlier fine art work, Photographic Prevarications, was shown in six one-person exhibits in as many years (2007 to 2012). In the summer of 2010 he began working on a long-term documentary project called Contemporary Views Along the First Transcontinental Railroad, our articles on which have been published (between 2014 and 2019). In addition, a memoir piece was published in Railroad Heritage in 2017 and a look at Santa Fe's semaphores was published in Railroad History in 2019.

Recently Koenig has collaborated with four scholars and artists from Indiana University on a traveling exhibit called, Hoosier Lifelines: Environmental and Social Change Along the Monon, 1847-2020.
