From October 2017 through April 2018, Orin Rutchick set up a small portable studio on the corner of Adeline and Harmon Streets in Berkeley and shot portraits of local residents. For many, these photographs were the only formal portraits they had of themselves since childhood or their teenage years. The images became a source of pride, both for how they saw themselves and for how they were seen by others. Rutchick's Berkeley Portrait Project is on view as a pop-up exhibition in the Brower Center's Second Floor Lobby throughout April, with an opening reception on Saturday, April 6.
