As the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy approaches, New Yorkers are starting to reflect anew on the disaster and its aftermath.
The International Center of Photography and the Museum of the City of New York are highlighting that journey in a jointexhibitioncalled “Rising Waters: Photographs of Hurricane Sandy.”
The 100 photographs in the exhibition were selected from nearly 6,000 entries submitted to an open call. They include high-resolution photos from professionals as well as photos from storm victims taken with mobile phones.
"I tried to focus more on the interest of what is depicted rather than on image quality or sharpness or composition. This is intended to be a little more descriptive," ICP curator Kristen Lubben said.
