Jon Berg first found solace in the seemingly miraculous production of images in submerged liquids in a darkened room, in his late teens. A dozen years later, while employed as an analyst with the U.S. Department of Energy in Washington, his black and white photography was widely exhibited in jurried gallery shows in and around town, as well as publication in local papers and arts magazines, especially of his dance rehearsal projects. Inspired by the dynamics of choreographed dance, Jon came to explore the dynamics of innate symmetries and balance in photo composition, which to this day remain an integral component of his photo portfolio.
In more recent years in France (as an English language instructor), he had the good fortune of landing a flat next to a magnificent and ancient park grounds, the Parc de Sceaux, where he honed his skills as a landscape photographer. Since returning to the States in 2006, he has worked extensively as a stock photographer.
