This is part of the $2 Portrait Project.

I met Kent while I was shooting neon along University Avenue in Berkley.

Kent was selling Street Sheets when I met him. He asked me for some money, and was happy to pose for the $2 Portrait Project when I assured him that this was not for commercial use.

He said he was originally from Flint, Michigan, but has been here so long people think he is a native Californian.

After we talked for a few minutes, I left him on the corner and continued photowalking along University Avenut.
