ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Richard Snodgrass was born in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania. After graduating from the University of California, Berkeley in 1963, he lived in San Francisco where he worked as a janitor, warehouseman, news analysis, editor, and for a dozen years, as a construction inspector on high-rise buildings, eventually becoming field supervisor, corporate troubleshooter and hatchet man. During this period he continued to write and photograph, earning an M.F.A in Photography and Visual Studies from the California College of Arts and Crafts in 1973.

 

In 1976, Richard began a sojourn crisscrossing the country, supported by grants, food stamps, and the kindness of friends and strangers, living in a variety of places including Syracuse, New York and Taos, New Mexico, during which time he researched and wrote THERE'S SOMETHING IN THE BACK YARD. In 1980 he settled in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where he lives today with his wife, Marty. For a number of years he worked in advertising and public relations as senior writer and producer. In 2007 he started his own communications company, Snodgrass Industries, Inc. where, in this one-person corporation, he is Chief Executive Officer and President.

 

His short stories and essays have appeared in the New England Review and Bread Loaf Quarterly, South Dakota Review, California Review, and elsewhere. An accomplished fine art photographer, Richard's photographs are in private and museum collections across the country. His Kitchen Things photographs-with-essays are a regular feature of TABLE Magazine. Grants and fellowships include: Artist in Residence, LightWorks, University of Syracuse; Artist in Residence, Helene Wurlitzer Foundation, Taos, New Mexico; and a Fellowship from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts.
