Tuesday Night Talk: "Aftermath: A Photographic Reflection" with Joshua Touster

  • Tewksbury Public Library 300 Chandler St. Tewksbury, MA 01876 (map)

The public is invited to an illustrated presentation on “Aftermath: A Photographic Reflection on the Boston Marathon Bombings,” a photography collection that captures how the tragedy affected the people of Boston. For the ten weeks following the Boston Marathon bombings, professional photographer Joshua Touster comprehensively photographed all aspects of the bombing’s aftermath, including the makeshift memorials; the bombing sites; first responders being honored at Fenway Park; the national media covering the bombings; the Tsarnaev home; the Watertown shootout location; crowds observing moments of silence; and the dismantling of the memorials by City of Boston archivists.  Touster will share these images, plus his own personal reflections of the bombings, including being locked down in his Watertown home and witnessing the joyous street celebrations that erupted after the capture of the second bombing suspect.  The “Aftermath” exhibit is currently on display at Curry College in Milton.
