Nina Berman is based in New York City, and has been a documentary photographer since 1987. She worked in various countries including Afghanistan, Bosnia, India and Vietnam, but she says that most of her time has been spent traveling the United States trying to understand the American way of life.
She won many awards and grants, and has a long list of clients including Time, Life, National Geographic, New York Times Magazine, Newsweek, New York Magazine, Mother Jones, and many others.
She earned deserved nationwide recognition for her Purple Hearts project; a series of photographic portraits and interviews with American soldiers returning badly wounded and maimed from the Iraq conflict. The images on her Purple Hearts website are simply heartbreaking.
However for TTP, I feature Berman's gallery with some of her work in Afghanistan which she titles "Under The Taliban". Her website has other galleries which are equally interesting.
