The show’s 12 photos are unusual in that Tortora shot them using a “toy” Holga camera that she modified to advance the film manually. The resulting double and triple exposures give the images a gauzy transparency. Tortora has been taking color photos since 1999 but the film was put aside because she only had a black-and-white darkroom.

The gallery, located at 121 Main St., is open Friday to Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. See
