Biography: For internationally celebrated, award winning portrait and documentary photographer Bill Bernstein, photography is anthropology. Since beginning his career at the Village Voice in the 1970s, his methodology has been one of researching and representing contemporary cultures and sub-cultures through photography. The openness of Bernstein’s style, like the photographers who have long influenced him—Avedon, Brassai, William Klein, Diane Arbus and Irving Penn—is classical, but current. He lives and works in New York City, his hometown.
