OCEAN GROVE, NJ – SEPTEMBER 03 (Photo By Amy Toensing)

Amy Toensing – Two Stories: Photographs
April 15 – May 15, 2022

Opening Reception: April 22 @7-9 pm

The exhibit, “Two Stories,” will include 25 photographs selected from two documentary projects in Toensing’s extensive portfolio of work, which has been widely published. In “A World of Widows,” a collaboration with writer Cynthia Gorney and videographer Kathryn Carlson, Toensing reports on the extreme hardships facing widows in many parts of the world, where a husband’s death may plunge a woman into circumstances of poverty, powerlessness and abuse. Of the subjects in these photographs, Toensing has said: “The widows themselves are their own eloquent biographers — as are the local social workers, lawyers and charity organizations helping these women find a stronger voice and perhaps a more joyful life.”
