Nina Berman is a documentary photographer, author and educator, whose photographs and videos have been exhibited at more than 100 international venues including the Whitney Museum of American Art Biennial, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Portland Art Museum, and Dublin Contemporary. She is the author of two monographs 'Purple Hearts - Back from Iraq', portraits and interviews with wounded American veterans, and 'Homeland', which explores the militarisation of American life post September 11.
Nina's photography is political and intentionally provocative. With many works centred around the current Trump administration in America, Berman's work places itself within contemporary political discussion, making statements and being a continuous presence in mainstream media outlets such as The New Yorker. Berman gets closer than we might ever feel photographers can, documenting intimate and important moments that we would find hard to put into words, but that her photography captures. Nina has said that 'news organisations owe the public more vigorous reporting on policing issues.' showing that as an artist she feels the importance of truthful representation and social justice.
We are extremely excited to be exhibiting Nina's work that lies on the intersection between politics and art, where neither takes precedence but both are deeply felt.
She’s received awards from the World Press Photo Foundation, Pictures of the Year International, the New York Foundation for the Arts and the Open Society Foundation. She is the 2016 Aftermath Project grant winner and the 2017 Susan Tifft fellow at the Center for Documentary studies at Duke University. She is a member of NOOR images and an associate professor at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism where she directs the photography program. She lives in her hometown of New York City.
