Reading of "The Fisherwoman" by Toni Morrison from Robert Bergman's book A Kind of Rapture, in conjunction with the exhibition Robert Bergman: Portraits, 1986-1995

Using a handheld 35 mm camera and available light, American photographer Robert Bergman spent nearly a decade making a series of large color portraits that address not only his subjects' physical presence but also their psychic states. On the occasion of the November 1 opening of Bergman's first solo exhibition, Toni Morrison read her essay "The Fisherwoman," which was originally written for Bergman's book A Kind of Rapture.
