New England–based photographer Mary Beth Meehan discusses her series Seen/Unseen. This body of work includes large-scale portraiture, a blog, and a public art installation located in downtown Providence, Rhode Island. Seen/Unseen raises questions about how we see one another as individuals through the personal portraits and stories of Providence residents.
