Photographs from the opening night of Mother, Me–a community photography exhibit featuring portraits of and by young mothers at Zoe’s Place, in collaboration with Hine Fellow Jenny Stratton–at the Cottage Gallery in Ridgewood, NJ. It was truly a special evening filled with emotion, storytelling, live music, photography, conversation and community. All donations from the event supported Zoe’s Place–a program of Children’s Aid and Family Services providing safe housing and services for pregnant teens, teenage mothers, and their children. Mother, Me is a participative storytelling project using photography, thread and writing to explore personal journeys, counter narratives, and ideas of motherhood.
