Devastation, Document, Drive: A SANDY Benefit Exhibiton

Added on by Annie Ling.

I'm honored to be part of an upcoming New York Photo Festival initiative and support other artists in need.
A group show benefiting artists affected by Hurricane Sandy will have it's opening reception from 7pm-9pm this Wednesday (Feb 13th) at the PowerHouse Arena in DUMBO at 37 Main St., Brooklyn.

All photos in the exhibition, including several of my selects from Breezy Point will be available for purchase for only $5 per photo (!!!) as suggested donation. Arrive early and invite all your friends to this special event. You wouldn't want to miss out!

"Large devastating storms like Sandy generate non-stop news coverage in the hours, days, and weeks after the initial tragedy. Too often, as the story begins to fade, so does the awareness about those still in need. While those in the areas deeply affected by Sandy are still rebuilding––and will be for quite some time––it is our goal to make sure the devastating visuals from the storm remain at the forefront of the public consciousness.

AdoramaPix has generously printed the exhibition’s over 1000 photographs, which “flood” The POWERHOUSE Arena walls. In the wake of Superstorm Sandy, The POWERHOUSE Arena suffered damage caused by 28” of water that entered our space and shattered our doors during the surge. It is our goal to replicate this flood line by displaying a 28” swatch of photographs depicting Sandy and the rebirth after the storm."
