#SANDY: Social Media and the Storm
Museum of the City of New York, 1220 Fifth Avenue at 103rd Street
Wednesday, December 4, 6:30pm

Acclaimed photographers Benjamin Lowy and Stephen Wilkes join Sean Corcoran, the Museum of the City of New York's Curator of Prints and Photographs, for a conversation about the unprecedented role that cell phones and social media played in documenting Superstorm Sandy and its aftereffects, as well as the larger use of photography in the media's coverage of the disaster. The conversation will draw on #SANDY (Daylight Books, 2013), a new book of iPhone photographs taken during the storm by professional photographers and photojournalists.

Co-sponsored by the International Center of Photography and presented in conjunction with Rising Waters: Photographs of Sandy.

Reservations required.

Tickets are $16; $10 for ICP Members.

Join the conversation on Twitter with @MuseumofCityNY, using #RisingWaters.
