Rising Waters: Photographs of Hurricane Sandy
Governors Island, Building 19, Nolan Park
August 24–September 29

In collaboration with the Museum of the City of New York, ICP presents a photography exhibition detailing the damage and recovery from Hurricane Sandy.

Drawn from an open call for submissions from the public that drew over 5,000 entries, the exhibition includes 100 works by more than 90 professional photographers, community members, and bystanders who photographed the effects of the devastating storm and the subsequent recovery efforts. The exhibition also showcases video from Gideon Mendel's Drowning World series on flood zones around the globe, and a slide-show of the photo submissions from faculty, students, and alumni of the School at ICP.

Rising Waters: Photographs of Hurricane Sandy is on view Saturdays and Sundays, 12–6 pm.

The closing reception will be held on Sunday, September 22, 1–4 pm.
