Photography

Berman, Zeke (1951)

After having studied sculpture at the Philadelphia College of Art, Zeke Berman turned to photography but his training clearly much influenced his practice. Reflecting on optical illusion and how strong the transformation of a three-dimensional construction into a two-dimensional photograph can be, the American photographer plays with space and the combination of mismatched objects. Zeke Berman uses string patterns and mirror images to disturb the viewer’s senses and proposes a graphic black-and-white work that mingles a surrealist mystery to a scientific perception.
