Nina Berman is an esteemed American documentary photographer who has received multiple awards and grants for her photojournalism, and has exhibited her work in museums across the globe. One of the primary themes of Berman’s work revolves around war, military service, and patriotism, and is seen front and center in her Purple Hearts project. Shortly before her December 2017 speaker event at our New York campus’s main studio space, Berman was featured in the New York Times profile “A Photographer and Her Subject Share a Journey Over the Decades.” The event, moderated by NYFA instructor Nancy Burson, was heralded as an informative success.
