The images in “NJ Soul of Hunger: The Atlantic City Story” at the Noyes Arts Garage here are simple, but they convey the many-layered effect of casino closings on area families.

Gary Howard, of Egg Harbor Township, shot a page in a dining guide to show a part of his life that ended with his 27-year job when the Showboat Atlantic City Casino closed.“I used to go out to eat once a week.

I’m not putting money back into the local economy anymore.”
