DESCRIPTION

The passing of Karl Koenig this January left a huge gap in the world of photography. He wrote the definite book on gumoil photography and was primarily known for his work in this medium although he practiced a variety of photographic and printmaking techniques. However, it was his imagery that he was most well known for: Striking shots of concentration camps, majestic trees, lonely grain elevators, remote places in New Mexico, and haunting French cemeteries. This show will feature a cross section of his techniques and subject matter.
