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, has been shown in six one-person exhibits in as many years--most recently at the Phillips Museum of Art, Franklin & Marshall College, during the spring of 2012.
In the summer of 2010 he began working on a long-term documentary project called Contemporary Views Along the First Transcontinental Railroad. He'll be speaking about this work in Truckee, California, on May 18th 2013. The work will then be on exhibit at Kansas State University, Manhattan, Kansas, from August 26th till September 6th 2013.
