NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A new photo exhibit documenting superstorm Sandy’s destruction has opened at the Museum of the City of New York.
As WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell reported, there are images that capture structural devastation, natural beauty and human despair.
“It brings you back to the moments of that storm where it was a storm unlike anything we had ever experienced,” said chief curator Sarah Henry.
“Rising Waters: Photographs of Sandy” features photos taken by professionals and amateurs.
“To pick the images that are powerful as photographs and that are important as historic documents,” Henry said of selecting which photos to include.
The exhibit features 200 images chosen from 10,000 submissions and will be on display until March 2, 2014.
