Herb Bardavid has been passionate about photography since he was twelve when he converted his family's only bathroom into a darkroom. Since then, he has taken courses in photography and darkroom techniques at Projects Incorporated in Cambridge, MA., a school started by Minor White; The New School; The School of Visual Arts; and most recently, at the International Center of Photography in New York City.
Herb has had eight shows. His first was in Cambridge, MA., in 1969, followed by the Third Eye gallery in New York City, two shows in Great Neck, NY, a group show at the Umbrella Arts Gallery in New York City, a juried show by the Long Island Center of Photography exhibited at the African American Museum in Hempstead, NY and a group show at the Paper City Studios in Holyoke, MA. He has been published in the WBAI Folio, the Gotham Gazette, and PDN Photo Magazine. As a psychotherapist, Herb sees things others may not. He views the world and its people through his own set of lenses, seeking change.
