211 E Hallam

211 E. Hallam was built in 1964 as the photography studio and salon for Ferenc Berko.  Berkos’s 2000 obituary in the New York Times describes him as “a Hungarian-born photographer who was a pioneer in the use of color film and helped to put Aspen, Colo., prominently on the map.”  “After capturing faces, places and figures throughout the world and briefly settling in Chicago, Mr. Berko accepted an invitation in 1949 to visit Aspen, a crumbling old silver-mining town, to record the transformation that was about to take place.”  Berko’s photos of the Goethe Bicentennial Convocation were the beginning of a 50 year residence in Aspen.  The studio was designed by AspenModern noted architect, Ted Mularz.
