UNSEEN takes a deeper look into the photography of Justin Hardiman. His style evokes an eclectic yet minimal representation of lived experiences in his home state of Mississippi. Empowerment and resilience are strong themes in his work, which speak to a profound natural beauty in underrepresented aspects of his community. Justin’s work is inspired by his home–both familial and environmental. Hardiman’s debut exhibition UNSEEN features prints of digital works, some of which have already earned him a name in the global art world, with Mississippi as his muse.
