Fadil Berisha was born in Kosovo but at an early age, he emigrated to Italy and then to America. Despite spending his entire life on the American continent, the connection with the Albanians has never faded. On the contrary, it remains the primary address for many Albanians who emigrate to America. Through his art, Berisha tries to present Albanians from another angle – demonstrating that Albanians have a rich tradition, culture, and history.
But Berisha is not only known to the Albanian community. He began his professional career by photographing famous women, such as Denise Richards, the ex-wife of actor Charlie Sheen. After her, Berisha photographed world-famous personalities such as Donald Trump, Russell Simmons, Bill Clinton, Halle Berry, Snoop Dogg, Roger Federer, Fergie, Patti LaBelle, Harry Belafonte, Jennifer Beals, Beverly Johnson, Robert Evans, Kim Kardashian, Tyra Banks, and others.
GERMIN’s Board of Directors has always played an active role in our organization’s decisions and mission. As a result, the GERMIN team is happy that a well-known personality like Berisha will now contribute to our permanent mission, connecting the Albanian diaspora with their homeland.
