Geoff Bergey is one of the five Big Picture Fellows who participated in photo workshops led by Carl-Philippe Juste and C.W. Griffin during the summer of 2019. They explored the use of photojournalism as a vehicle for self-expression, resiliency, bearing witness, and capturing history.

Panel 2 and Panel 11 showcase some of Geoff’s photography.

Journaling was a component of the photo workshops. This journal entry immediately followed Workshop #3.

Was there a light show behind my eyelids as I slept last night? Was there a lightning storm that subtly worked its way into my dreams?

The cascading effects of a workshop, an electric charge to the creative spirit. Has my creative engine been broken down on the side of the road? Did Carl and CW show up and provide the energy?

My creative engine is running again, the dream validated the previous days. –Geoff Bergey

Bicycle riding is one of Geoff’s favorite forms of recreation. This video testifies to its restorative power.
