Risking Life & Lens: Exhibit opening with photographer Helen M. Stummer


This timely exhibit introduces a new generation of viewers to the work of revered New Jersey photographer Helen M. Stummer, who in the course of four decades has braved some of the meanest streets in America to capture the humanity of people struggling to overcome inhuman conditions.

The photographs on display are a representative sample from her new book "Risking Life and Lens: A Photographic Memoir" (Temple University Press 2017). Signed copies of the book will be available for purchase on April 8.
RSVP by calling (973) 596-8500 ext. 0.
