Jerry Berndt: –The Combat Zone


I love Jerry Berndt. His work is clear and ambiguous like the man . To look at his photographs is to look at their creator. But it’s no cakewalk. It’s rough and exciting, a declaration of love and war, a tender look at mankind and a hateful glare at the system that degrades him. Jerry is a rebel. He’s fighting the good cause against injustice wherever it may be found.

A self-made man, he learned to print pictures and naturally became a photographer. It was the beginning of the protests in the US for racial and social equality, and against the Vietnam War. Boston, with its prestigious universities like MIT and Harvard, was one of the centers of the uprising. Jerry joined the protesters and photographed what he saw, submitting his pictures to the underground and leftist Liberation News Service. The homeless and the architecture of run-down neighborhoods became the subjects that would turn him into a professional photographer.
