ABOUT ARNOLD BERKMAN

 

 

 

I have been photographing for over forty years. After a forty-five year career as a clinical psychologist, I retired from the practice of psychology to pursue a second career as a fine art and landscape photographer. Other than participating in several photography workshops, as well as a photography course at Michigan State University’s Evening College, I am self-taught.

 

Of all the visual arts, only photography can capture and freeze a fleeting moment in time. In my photography, I try to reveal those fleeting moments that are uniquely beautiful, poignant, and compelling, so that others can see and experience what I had seen and experienced.

 

The painter, Edward Hopper, after being asked by a journalist, "What do you paint?" replied, "I paint light." The word, "photograph", means painting with light. Without light, even the most special moment in time will appear static and flat. Light brings a photograph to life. It is only then, that my experience of those unique and special moments in time can be fully shared.
