Martha Berriman has worked as a photographer in the Detroit area for fifteen years. She has a B.S. in Zoology from Michigan State University and studied photography at Grand Valley State University. In addition to working with her client base of corporate, academic, and private clients, she is also attending graduate school in Education at Wayne State University.
This image is part of an ongoing project entitled Kustom Car Culture, which was first exhibited during Detroit Focus 2000. The people in her photographs are all closely associated with the California car club scene. Berriman has found that work on this project has allowed her to blend a personal interest in automotive culture with professional growth.
