Kurt Leichter is a retired jeweler who served the greater Oklahoma City and surrounding area for over thirty years. Leichter is a native of Vienna, Austria, and retirement has given him time to return there and enjoy his second career as an amateur photographer. In 1996, the city of Vienna invited many Austrian-born amateur photographers, including Leichter, to return and exhibit their work in an exhibition designed for those who escaped during the Nazi occupation. Kurt has had various showings throughout the state and at Norick Art Center. Kurt and his family attend United Methodist Church of the Servant.
