Every now and then, the art world offers up an unlikely story, and Robert Bergman's is one of them. The 65-year-old photographer went his own way over the past four decades, never selling a work until two years ago, but he nevertheless is about to burst onto the scene with two museum exhibitions this month. One is at the prestigious, conservative National Gallery of Art in Washington. The other is at P.S.1 in Queens, the adventurous branch of the Museum of Modern Art. And next month he will have his first show at a commercial gallery, Yossi Milo in Chelsea.

it is good to know that some people
who are virtually unknown are getting a chance.

the slide show of his work was beautiful.
you can tell bergman has an eye for formal
painterly portraits. one of his subjects even had a nimbus :smile:
