RETURN TO PHOTOGRAPHY
My philosophy is to visually document the beauty of humanity. After experiencing the horrors, trauma and effects of war while serving in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. One must see the beauty of small acts of kindness to live in this chaotic world. My photography mainly helps and focuses on the divine beauty of the commonality of struggling women. My intent is to show visual examples of the feminine side of womanhood to give faith and hope to young women in the struggling situations of their lives. My projects showcase the emotions of women so others may have their witness of the human experience. My images are traveling diverse images throughout all demographics to promote the strength of the divine feminine and the female goddess.
Biography: Dr. Paul Berg started in photography in the 1980’s with an art professor who studied under Ansel Adams in outdoor photography and later pursued photography under the inspiration of Robert Mapplethorpe. In the 1990’s, Paul joined the U.S. military as a CH-47 helicopter pilot, which became a 28-year military career to include four combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan with the 101st Airborne Division and the 1st Cavalry Division. After receiving his PhD in adult education and his military retirement, Paul became a full-time university professor and photographer and continues to take photos. He now uses his photos to help teach the beauty of humanity. Paul takes photographs for free for struggling artists and models who can’t afford it otherwise. A person’s world can change with just one photograph published. The greatest gift we can give are acts of kindness.
