How to create a photo gallery (lightbox) from just one picture

Hello, I’m using the essential grid plugin, and I would like to know if it’s possible with it to ‘trigger’ a lightbox image gallery with several images in it, but from one image. Not sure how to explain it; I’d like to click on a one single image (or even a label, or a text with a link), some sort of ‘folder’ thumbnail, and that this would start the lightbox gallery, showing several pictures inside.
Is that possible?
Thank you very much,
