Dan Neuberger left his native Yugoslavia at age 11, came to NYC, took a painting class in a WPA art school, thought a bit about his experience there, and decided to become a scientist. At age 16, he developed a real taste for photography, and has been savoring it ever since.
At Columbia College, he earned a BA in Chemistry while very active in the camera club, and then, a few harrowing years later, received a PhD in Physical Chemistry at the U of R. He became a photographic research scientist in the Kodak Research Laboratories, and considered himself very fortunate to be able to forge a symbiotic relationship between his two great loves, the scientific and aesthetic aspects of photography, both of which require creativity. His favorite compliment is that he exhibits a nice blend of left- and right-brain activity. He was also pleased to be referred to as “childlike” (to be distinguished from “childish”). Since he defines success as being in love with your work, he feels he has always been, and still is, a very successful person.
His work is in many private, corporate, hospital, and university collections and in two museums. Galleries in New York City, Long Island, Denver, Syracuse, Cape Cod, and….. Rochester have exhibited his work, and he has won many Best-of-Show awards, most recently at the Chautauqua National Exhibition of American Art, against over nine hundred works in all media.
