about the artist
Allan Gerson was born in 1945 in Uzbekistan, then part of the USSR. His photographic works are in the permanent collections of the International Photography Hall of Fame Museum, the University of Mississippi Art Museum, and the Morocco Royal Palace in Rabat. Private collections include Crowell and Moring LLP, Charles E. Smith Company, and the Artery Corporation.
In addition to his photography, Gerson is a renowned Washington D.C. based lawyer who has represented victims of terrorism and human rights abuses. He is the author of numerous books and has lectured extensively at universities here and abroad.
"From the enticing reductions of the desert and the stark silences of the mosque to the cacophonic semiotics of the street- the heard blues of fire escapes and facades of Broadway to the iron striptease of the Eiffel Tower, Gerson asks us to rethink the world." -Harry Mattison, Maryland Institute College of Art
