Michael Germann
mik1a1low@powersurfr.com
Mr. Germann is a brain injury survivor and photographer. "I am a 38 Year old male that has sustained brain injury due to toxins from which I was Exposed to on the Job. I was told by the medical professional that I would never be able to go back to work again at any real job due to mood swings and not being able to remember things. I have turned to doing art and photography as a way to deal with this. I have found art and photography give some important to me in life again. When all else seems to have left. It helps me to express my self in a safe and visual sense that I enjoy. I am always very happy to hear from others that enjoy my work and there opinions."

"LIKE THIS PLANT I PRESIST
I MAY BE UNWANTED ON THE LAWN
I WILL NOT LET THIS STOP ME
ATTITUDES NEED TO CHANGE
HELP BREAK THE STIGMA"

THE REMINDER
Phases of Recovery
"This is symbolic to me of how one moves forward after an injury. The buds in the back ground represent all that one must leave behind. So that one can move forward. Even when one finaly leaves all behind we must achknolege our Linitation and be prepared to countinuely deal with the reality put on us by society."

Gerry Giliberti
ggilib2972@aol.com
"I am a survivor of alopecia totalis. It is a quiet yet life-altering affection that changes the way the world perceives you. My photographs reflect my search to find how the physical world perceives itself."
Gerry Giliberti is a photographic artist who uses graphics, photography and digital imagery to create abstract, surrealistic images that bring the viewer into a new visual world. Having pursued a classical bachelor of fine arts education including photography, oil and watercolor painting, illustration, etching, silk-screening and various printmaking techniques, including archival photographic processing techniques, Giliberti laid the foundation for his unique ability to see simple images among complex textures.
"My intent is to create a mythic dreamscape that explores the balance between the spiritual and the abstract. The artistic result is that reality looks somewhat unreal and traces of humanity are felt by the evocation of ancient memories. The use of multiple media allows me the flexibility to capture and convey the mystery of light in the exploration of new artistic areas that help redefine the preconceived notions of what photographic art really is."
