Paul Berger has been at the University of Washington’s School of Art for 24 years, teaching in the Photography program, which he co-founded in 1978. He has been working in the photographic medium since 1965, and in digital electronic media since 1981. Although trained in a classical photographic tradition, he has been primarily involved in digital manipulation of electronic images for the past seventeen years, and initiated a sequence of digital imaging classes within the photography curriculum beginning in 1985. He has had a book version of his series Seattle Subtext published in 1984, and a catalog to the Seattle Art Museum exhibition “The Machine in the Window” published in 1990. He has received two NEA grants, in 1979 and 1986, and has exhibited his photographic and digital artworks widely, both nationally and in Europe (New York 1999; Copenhagen 2001).
