Dina Rudick self-portrait
This summer, Globe staff photographer Dina Rudick hit the road with John Kerry and captured several unconventional portraits of life on the campaign trail.

Rudick, a native of the swing state of Ohio, graduated from Ohio University with a major in photojournalism. She interned at the Midland Daily News in Midland, Mich., and The Boston Globe before being hired by the Globe in November 2002.
