Richard Bergan was born in front of a med-school class at Yale-New Haven Hospital. He grew up in
Middletown, studied at Connecticut College in New London and is currently living in Norwalk.
Rich is a photographer interested in capturing the influence of people on their environment and other
people around them. The photographs submitted today for consideration are beach scenes that capture
humanity’s influence on nature and also how people’s experience of nature is influenced by the many,
sometimes small and sometimes significant, decisions made by the people who inhabited the space
before the subject in the photo (or the viewer).
This is an ongoing theme in Rich’s work, and he continues to explore the many manifestations of this
idea in reality.
