Berry Bingel was born in Germany and was introduced to photography on his 14th birthday when he started to develop his interest to explore the medium. Berry never received any formal university art degree but unlike some autodidacts he is a strong believer in the power of observing, influence and learning from the past, especially from the early days mistakes which lead consequently to various experimentation over many years which in turn convinced him that the opportunities in the field of photography are probably endless. He is living in Scotland since 1980. He doesn’t worry about trends, staying true to his point of view as an image creator. Though we’re looking at the same thing, we all see and form our own points of view. His work explores the lines between art, documentary and human intervention to engage with issues that have undergone cultural, social, or environmental change.
