Ferenc Berko (1916-2000) was born in Hungary and moved to Germany with his family shortly after World War I. As a teenager he discovered photography and was exposed to the ideas of many prominent artists and photographers, including László Moholy-Nagy and Walter Gropius. From 1933 to 1947 he lived in London, Paris, and Bombay, where he established himself as a filmmaker and photographer. At the invitation of Moholy-Nagy, he came to the United States to teach at the Chicago School of Design (now called the Institute of Design), and he pursued his avid interests in color photography. In 1949, Walter Paepcke persuaded him to settle in Aspen and work as a publicity, advertising, and portrait photographer for his company, The Container Corporation. From 1951 until his death, Berko was a filmmaker and advertising and documentary photographer in Aspen.
