ROYAL HOST MOTEL, LAS CRUCES, NM, 2016

Bruce Berman

Been a photographer for awhile. Started out in Chicago as a street photographer shooting riots for UPI and the Christian Science Monitor. Got fairly good at it and started hanging out with the people I photographed and morphed into the idea of doing documentary photography although I didn’t know there was a name for it.
Got lost in the desert and ended up in El Paso three blocks from Mexico.
Been shooting there -and everywhere- ever since.
As a shooter I pretty much have done everything one can imagine in photography to earn shekels. Concentrating now and find myself back at my roots, photojournalism and documentary.
Teaching at a university. Nice! Opportunities to research, great to be working with a new generation, lets me keep at it, gets me out of my own head.
Still going.
What more can you ask?
