Beginning April 8, the Cloister Gallery will be featuring "Off the Grid," a photography exhibit aimed at changing the face of homelessness using photography. All of the photographs were taken by persons experiencing homelessness. They had varying backgrounds, but all were living and transitioning out of the Lynn Emergency Shelter.

They were loaned a camera and were trained to use it to tell their story and share their experience. With no specific direction of what to photograph, they used creativity and selfexpression as their underlying focus. “If only you could walk in my shoes” was a phrase that was frequently used by the photographers and reflected their desire for others to understand the hardship of homelessness. Don’t miss this powerful and moving exhibit.
