NEW YORK (AP) — An exhibition on the one-year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy features photographs by amateurs and professionals, many of whom were personally affected by the storm.
“Rising Waters: Photographs of Sandy” presents 200 images culled from 10,000 submissions from New York, Long Island and New Jersey. It opens Saturday at the Museum of the City of New York and runs through March 2.
The show is arranged by themes starting with the storm’s assault.
Curator Sean Corcoran says the pictures chronicle not only the physical onslaught but also the personal stories of despair, coping and hope.
Among the highlights is a large photo diary created by Larry Racioppo from scrap wood and orange “caution” tape. The Belle Harbor, Queens, resident’s account begins on the day of the storm and ends in spring.
