'Ferenc Berko's life story molded his artistic appreciation for formal aesthetic elements rather than photographic commentary. Born in 1916 in Hungary, Berko moved to Germany in 1921, spending his adolescence surrounded by great artists such as Moholy- Nagy, Walter Gropius, and Marcel Breuer. They encouraged his compositional instinct for spare geometric combinations of form and tonal values. In 1933, Berko left Germany to pursue his studies in philosophy in London. In 1947, Moholy-Nagy invited him to teach photography and film at the Chicago Institute of Design. Berko's photographs from this period depict the harsh beauty and details of an industrial cityscape and demonstrate a distinct shift toward the abstract. In 1949, Berko was invited to Aspen, Colorado, as the photographer for the Goethe Bicentennial. In 1951, Berko began the Aspen Photography Conference. He invited the foremost American photographers of the century (Ansel Adams, Harry Callahan, Charles Eames, Laura Gilpin, Dorothea Lange, Wayne Miller, John Morris, Nancy and Beaumont Newhall, Eliot Porter, Frederick Sommer, Edward Weston, and Minor White) to Aspen for a week of lectures and workshops.

Berko died in Aspen in 2000 and is recognized as one of the 100 most important photographers of the 20th century. His work is in major national and international collections. He has had articles in all of the major photographic magazines and published two books, "60 Years of Photography: The Discovering Eye" (Stemmle,1991) and "Berko: Photographs 1935-1951" (Graphis,1999).'
