Hunter Barnes is a photographer who focuses his artistic gaze on the faces of groups of people who are consistently misrepresented in the modern American narrative. At MOBIA he will speak about his project and book, A Testimony of Serpent Handling, and share images and personal stories from his time spent in West Virginia. “I was invited by the families and congregation of my friend’s Serpent Handling churches in West Virginia to live and document their lives. The people in these photographs took me in as one of their own. I was shown a way of life sometimes unseen and able to share their story.” - Hunter Barnes
