Gert Berliner: About People
Monday April 15: 7:30PM – 8:30PM
This event is free to attend.
Doors open 30 minutes before the start of the event.
ABOUT PEOPLE Photographs, by Gert Berliner, showcases not only Berliner’s brilliant eye but memorably celebrates people, both the known and the unknown, on two continents in work taken from the late 1950s through the mid-1960s. Photographer, painter, and former filmmaking colleague of Robert Frank (“PULL MY DAISY”; “SIN OF JESUS”; “O.K. END HERE”), Gert Berliner’s unerring street photographer’s sensibility is second to none as this generous first time ever collection of his essential work makes plain. Gert Berliner has been an exhibitor at New York City’s groundbreaking Image Gallery, a contributor to HARPER’S BAZAAR, the NEW YORK TIMES, and NEW YORK magazine, as well as numerous other publications and books. ABOUT PEOPLE is sure to win favor with a broad photography audience.
Join us in the Rare Book Room as publisher Marshall Brooks sits down with award-winning journalist and NPR editor Uri Berliner to discuss Gert's life and legacy.
Recent exhibitions of Gert Berliner's photographs have included the “IMAGE GALLERY REDUX 1959-1962”, Howard Greenberg Gallery, New York (2014) and a solo exhibit of work, “NEW YORK THE SIXTIES”, at Galerie Argus Fotokunst, Berlin, Germany (2016).
