Hollis Engley: Family Stories
March 9th, 2021 through May 7th, 2021
Adele H. Waggaman Community Gallery
“I’m surrounded by photographs…the images are populated by the people I knew and people entirely unknown to me. All are connected – deeply or through their descendants – to my native Island. I was born here in 1947.” Hollis Engley began his career as a photojournalist for the Vineyard Gazette and says, “I learned to tell a story with an image. But images need context – words to identify the face – to complete the story.” This exhibit features a selection of his images and the surprising, moving, and compelling stories around them.
