Michael Berman


Michael P. Berman now wanders the terrain of the American West and Mexico Norteno, and more recently, the Gobi of Mongolia. In another life, in his first and perhaps only paying job, he worked as a biologist with peregrine falcons in early endangered species studies in Colorado. Ever since that time he has continued looking at ecological systems while photographing the land and exploring the boundary of art and science.

He was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2008 to photograph the Chihuahuan Desert. He has received painting fellowships from the Arizona Commission on the Arts and the Wurlitzer Foundation. His photographs are included in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Amon Carter Museum and the Museum of New Mexico. He has received grants for environmental work from the McCune and Lannan Foundations. In 2013, he was honored with the Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts in New Mexico.   

His most recent book is "Perdido: Sierra San Luis." Other books include, “Gila: The Enduring Silence” and the first and third books of a border trilogy with writer Charles Bowden, "Inferno" and "Trinity." Michael was born in New York City in 1956 and now lives in Silver City, New Mexico.
