WINNER LOVE 2014 - THIRD PRIZE
After protesting against the Vietnam War while at university, Steven Gelberg became a world-transcending Hindu monk for seventeen years. He later participated in conferences and published several academic books. After a Master's Degree in Theological Studies in 1990, he searched for some form of creative expression. He tried painting and sculpture, and discovered photography: «Almost overnight, I discovered a love for photography as an expressive medium, along with a talent for it. After twenty years as a photographer, I find myself with a significant amount of work and a constant pleasure in the art and the quest for Beauty». Steven Gelberg has published several books of his photographs and continues to write to express his ideas on consciousness and the world around us.
