Far Rockaway New York after Hurricane Sandy in Photos by Tom Poole
I was recently asked by some friends of mine to document the dire situation in Far Rockaway, NY, post Hurricane Sandy.
These friends of mine have been extremely active in volunteer relief efforts and raising money to help local people with the clean up (Which will take a very long time).
Please feel free to check out their amazing work on their site:
I shot everything with my M9, mostly opting for the 50mm Summilux, but occasionally using the 35mm Summicron.
It’s very easy to forget about the lasting effects that an event like Sandy can have on a community. I only hope that the people of Rockaway (and the other areas affected in NY and NJ), bounce back stronger.
Thanks so much
