Neighbors work to extinguish the remnants of the fire which swept through the beach front community of Breezy Point, Queens the night of Superstorm Sandy, leaving over 100 homes in ashes. The community, home to many fire fighters, was cut off from the fire station just a few blocks away by Sandy's floodwaters.

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 7,000 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 will be on view at Governors Island Saturdays and Sundays, 12–6 pm, and Labor Day on Monday, September 2.
