Gert Berliner was born in Berlin, Germany in 1924. He lived in Sweden from 1939 until 1947 when he moved to the United States. He worked as a photojournalist in New York in the 1960s and was involved in filming and photographing several films, including "Sin of Jesus" (1960) and "O.K. End Here" (1963), both of which were directed by Robert Frank.

In addition to this work Berliner pursued many private projects. These included the series of photographs taken on New York City subways without the subjects knowing they were being photographed, and the series of single figures walking (both shown below). This last series, "All the lonely people", was published as a two-page spread in "New York" magazine (December 2006), and won a merit award from the Society of Publication Designers.

As well as his work as a photographer, Berliner was also an active painter, working primarily in a bold, hard-edged style.
