Photographer Rich Klein has spent his life in many cities and towns across beautiful New York State.
Born in Manhattan, raised on Long Island and a graduate of SUNY New Paltz, he has lived since 2006 in Sullivan County's Catskills, where he has shot thousands of photos.
A permanent exhibit of his Sullivan Catskills prints are on display inside Eleanor's Country Kitchen at the Villa Roma Resort. Since mid November 2018, photographs from the Catskills book have been on display on the first floor of the Sullivan County Government Center in Monticello NY.
He is a former member of the Catskill Art Society and an associate board member of the Liberty Museum & Arts Center, where he helped curate a major Summer 2017 exhibit "Barns of the Catskills." In 2017-2018, his photojournalism works that featured local firefighters were on display in the windows of the Museum.
Among other local displays, his large photo print of the Roman Colosseum is also on display at Colosseo Family Restaurant and Pizzeria in Monticello.
He is a former member of the Sullivan County Visitors Association and was also previously a member of the Sullivan County Chamber of Commerce and the steering committee of the Bethel Council of the Arts.
Klein is the co-author of Massapequa: A Pictorial History Through the Eyes of Baby Boomers and has participated in more than 20 exhibits around Long Island in 2015-2016. He has a permanent photography exhibit at Northwell Health/GoHealth Urgent Care in his hometown of Massapequa, where a large print from that book is on permanent display at the Massapequa Public Library.
In 2021, he is working on his third book "50 Women Over 50 From One Town."
Klein is also the winner of two art festival awards in New Jersey. In September 2021, he took first place in photography at the Roselle Park NJ Art Festival and second place in photography at the Edgewater Art and Music Festival.
