Nina Berman

Nina Berman is a documentary photographer with a primary interest in the American political and social landscape.

Ms. Berman’s work has been extensively published, exhibited and collected. She is the recipient of two World Press awards, a 2006 fellowship from the New York Foundation for the Arts, and a 2005 grant from the Open Society Institute Documentary Photography Fund.

Her first monograph, “Purple Hearts – Back From Iraq”, a collection of portraits and interviews with U.S. soldiers wounded in the war, was published by Trolley in 2004 and received wide acclaim. The book was made into a feature length documentary film by the same name and screened worldwide.

Her work has been the subject of several solo and group exhibitions in galleries and museums in New York, Chicago, Washington D.C., and throughout Europe.

She is on the faculty of the International Center of Photography in her hometown of New York City.
