Justin Hackworth’s “30 Strangers” photography exhibit features portraits of mothers and daughters from all walks of life. Justin never meets any of these women until they are in front of his camera — that’s where the stranger part comes in. Here are five reasons you should visit the exhibit.

1. Each photo captures an authentic relationship between a mother and daughter, a grandmother and a granddaughter, or a sister and a sister.

2. Every participant makes a $45 donation per session to the Center for Women and Children in Crisis in Provo.

3. The crisis center is a place where survivors of domestic violence and their children are given food, shelter and support for up to 30 days.

4. The exhibit is free.

5. Visiting the exhibit is a perfect girl’s night activity for the women in your life. Grab your daughter, sister, mom or grandmother and check it out.

 

See the exhibit at the BYU Auditorium Gallery at the Harold B. Lee Library starting July 15, with an opening reception that night from 6 to 9 p.m. Or enjoy viewing the portraits anytime the following month.
