Curt Richter
Curt Richter was born and raised in New York City and picked up his first camera at the age of 12. Those streets, movie theaters, and museums were a fertile playground for anyone hoping to become an artist. He has received many grants and commissions including a Guggenheim Fellowship and commissions from the N.E.A. and N.E.H. His prints are in numerous public collections including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; The National Portrait Gallery, Washington, D.C.; Victoria and Albert Museum, London; and Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris. His first monograph, A Portrait of Southern Writers, was published in 2000. He moved to Finland as a Fulbright Senior Scholar in 1997 and continues to work and live in New York and Helsinki.
