Franz Berko

Franz Berko, Aspen’s foremost photographer in the 1950s and ’60s, came to Aspen at Walter Paepcke’s invitation and soon decided to settle here.

His career encompassed photography and film making in London, Paris, and India. He taught at Chicago’s Institute of Design and became the Aspen Institute’s official photographer of Aspen, its community and environs, and of leading visitors, including Albert Schweitzer, Thornton Wilder, Arturo Rubinstein, and Adlai Stevenson.
