Doug Birkenheuer: Capturing Light. Illuminating Life in Chicago

By Ernest Disney-Britton
Burn Through, 2014
ILLINOIS--Chicago-based photographer Doug Birkenheuer has devoted his talent and vision to photography for over twenty years. He received his Associates Degree from the Antonelli Institute of Photography in Cincinnati, OH in 1988. We met right before he relocated to Chicago in 1994, where he impressed me with his mystical and sensual photo collages in Cincinnati. In recent years, Doug Birkenheuer has taught photography courses at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and he's continued to develop a loyal following among individual collectors like me.
