Last month, Berkeleyside introduced an exciting new project by our longstanding contributing photographer Nancy Rubin. With Humans of Berkeley and the Bay Area (HUBBA for short), Rubin is chronicling in wonderful images the people of Berkeley and beyond. Today we are delighted to publish another set of Rubin’s photographs.

Read our interview with Rubin in which she talks about what inspired her to start the project and how it also has a philanthropic element. And be sure to click though to the HUBBA project on Facebook (and “like” it) to read extended captions for the photographs shown here and many more. HUBBA is also now on Tumblr.
