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."

Four articles of "Contemporary Views" have been published—in the journals of the Union Pacific Historical Society (2), the National Railway Historical Society, as well as in Trains Magazine. In addition, a memoir piece about mentorship called "Growing up in a Railroad Vacuum" was published in the journal Railroad Heritage, and an article on the Santa Fe, "Field Notes in The Land of Enchantment," in Railroad History.
