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. To celebrate Bergman's first solo exhibition on November 1, 2009, Toni Morrison read her essay "The Fisherwoman," which was originally written for Bergman's book A Kind of Rapture.
