A native of Switzerland, John Bernhard traveled North America extensively before settling in Houston, Texas. For more than two decades he has chosen the medium of photography to explore the everyday world from new perspectives, breaking away into different pathways of artistic expression. He continues to devote all his energy taking photographs and bringing them together to enhance their meaning with visual interplay. He is the author of 7 monographs, among which are: Nudes Metamorphs, Nicaragua, Diptych, Evanescence, Drift, China and his most recent book Body Work, a 30 years retrospective of photographs of the Nudes. In 2011, Bernhard’s first non-fiction novel America’s Call was published by Dog Ear Publishing.
His work has been published in numerous books and magazines and he has had many collective and one person exhibitions throughout the U.S. and Europe. In addition, his photographs are included in museums and private collections. His work was included in “Body Work” curated by Christian Peterson, a 120 year survey of photographs of the nude from the work of twelve photographers selected from the permanent collection of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. His work has most recently been exhibited as a retrospective at the Musée des Suisses dans le Monde in Geneva.
Bernhard resides in Houston where he has designed and built his studio and an art gallery.
