About The Artist
Gary Berson was raised in South Orange, NJ and attended Skidmore College until he was injured in an automobile accident in 1991. He sustained both a traumatic brain injury and a spinal fracture. It took Gary years of rehabilitation and perseverance to recover. As a result of this experience, he and his family helped form an organization called Opportunity Project, Inc. to provide support and guidance for people with brain injury.
Through Gary’s recovery and his work with Opportunity Project, Gary became re-engaged with his love for photography, which had begun when he was in high school. Through his photography, Gary was introduced to Arts Unbound, an organization dedicated to the artistic achievement of people living with disabilities and the continued artistic enrichment of seniors, believing art is for all.
