Damion Berger is a photographer who makes the viewer question the possibilities of photography
and its relationship to time and movement. Operating between abstraction and conceptualism, his
unorthodox approach to traditional photographic process typically employs long exposure and incamera
techniques to make photographic “recordings” that probe the conventions of photography.
At the heart of his practice are experiments in mark-making, quite literally painting with light.
By exploring the relationship of time, movement, and light, his work flips the concept of the
photographic moment on its head, rendering the invisible visible. Often printed in the negative, his
photographs resemble layered line drawings and reference the historical evolution of photography.
Born in London, he currently lives and works in New York and France. He earned a B.F.A. from
Parsons The New School of Design in New York. His solo exhibitions include Black Powder (2013),
Lisa Sette Gallery, Scottsdale, Arizona; In the Deep End (2007), Eden Rock Gallery, St. Barthélemy;
and In the Deep End (2006), Art & Rapy, Monaco. His work has been featured in numerous group
exhibitions, most notably at the Hecksher Museum of Art, Huntington, New York (2014); Haggerty
Museum of Art, Milwaukee (2013); Oxenberg Fine Art, Miami (2013); Fotofest Biennial, Discoveries
of the Meeting Place (2012); The Center for Fine Art Photography, Fort Collins, Colorado (2010);
Photographic Center Northwest, Seattle (2009); and the traveling exhibition Flash Forward 2008:
Emerging Photographers from Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States. His book In The
Deep End (Amsterdam: Schilt, 2011) was listed in PDN as one of its Best Books of the Year.
