'Rising Waters' documents Superstorm Sandy devastation

A year ago this week Superstorm Sandy devastated New York City and the surrounding region. The Museum of the City of New York looks back at the damage in an exhibition featuring images taken by professional photographers and everyday people. The inclusion of so many images by novice photographers, both in the exhibition and in media at the time of the storm, is an indication of the power of today's 'citizen journalists'. 

"Rising Waters: Photographs of Sandy" is presented in collaboration with the International Center of Photography. It will be on view at the Museum of the City of New York through March 2, 2014.
