Richard Schramm has been taking pictures for forty years, but until his retirement he was unable to devote his full attention to photography.  Now he is able to put his eye to a viewfinder often, and with the help of courses at Duke’s Center for Documentary Studies he has framed some interesting shots.  Portfolios of his work have appeared online in the The Oxford American’s “Eyes on the South” series and in South x Southeast Photomagazine.  In 2020 his photos were part of a two-artist exhibition at the National Humanities Center in Research Triangle Park, NC.  His images have been featured in exhibitions throughout the United States and at the Glasgow Museum of Photography in Scotland and the LoosenArt Gallery in Rome.  Recently, one of his images was selected as a winner in the 2023  International Photo Competition sponsored by The Photo Review magazine. His work can be seen at his website Richard Schramm Photography.

“Working Partners” was shot with a Nikon D70 fitted with a Nikon 18.0-70.0 mm lens.
