“A portrait is generally eloquently lit, its subject artfully posed and objectively rendered by the camera’s lens. Although the art does not always lie in the carefully conceptualized framing, but in the moment. That fleeting instant in which your picture can become everything, or nothing at all. It is within this realm that Courtney Berman emerges to memorialize instances with an innate understanding of realism. Due to her eye for the beauty of each moment, her photographs can range from serene and organic, to furious and energetic. “ – Colin Louis Dieden.
