A painter and filmmaker as well as a photographer, Gert Berliner enjoyed entree to many of the New York City and Long Island-based art scenes of the 1950s and 1960s, which is reflected in much of his photography. Born in Berlin in 1924, his family taken in the Holocaust, Gert Berliner emigrated from Sweden to New York City in 1947 where he has lived most of his life. Many of these images have been reproduced in such publications as HARPER’S BAZAAR, NEW YORK HERALD TRIBUNE, NEW YORK TIMES, SATURDAY EVENING POST, and NEW YORK magazine. www.gertberliner.com
