Unmasked: Local Heroes Get Some Limelight

Enrique Meza is the photographer behind Unmasked.

Sometimes courageous, noble, hard-working people grab the headlines -- but most of the time their work goes unnoticed by the public. They’re the teachers, organizers, artists, and more who help to make places like Fresno better. Well, now some of these local heros are being celebrated -- in a new portrait series that opens at Arthop Thursday Feb. 7 and runs for three months at Bitwise South Stadium. The show is called Unmasked and it’s the brainchild of photographer Enrique Meza and Bitwise CEO and co-founder Jake Soberal . We recently spoke with Soberal about how this project evolved.
