Destructive Art Of Super Storm Sandy

Destructive Art Of Hurricane Sandy

 

Sandy Art is the featured gallery and contains historical photographs that were artistically destroyed in Hurricane Sandy (nicknamed Super Storm Sandy), which struck the Northeastern shores in October, 2012. These unique prints embody this once-in-a-lifetime intersection of disaster, history and art. When Hurricane Sandy destroyed 30,000 of Randy's images that spanned decades of photojournalism, he created a technique of dipping the images in rubbing alcohol in a desperate attempt to stop the ongoing deterioration. This technique is detailed in the following video.
