Richmond Center for Visual Arts
Professor Krueger received both his undergraduate and graduate degrees from Northern Illinois University, with a B.F.A. in Metals, 1970, and his M.F.A. in Photography, 1976. During the past thirty years he has taught photography at Northern Illinois University, Elgin Community College, Syracuse University and currently Bowling Green State University. He was one of the co-founders of the Syracuse University art photography program, served as the chair of art media studies, as an assistant dean of visual and performing arts, and most recently as the director of the School of Art at Bowling Green State University.
Conceptually his creative work, narrative fantasy, masquerades as reality with an emphasis on the existentially absurd; technically his research agenda focuses on issues of photographic illusion, experimental color photography, and alternative/pinhole cameras. His photographs, drawings and paintings have been exhibited nationally. Professor Krueger's teaching resume includes: all levels of photography, serigraphy, senior studio, pedagogy, graduate critique, and professional practices and presentation.
