#SANDY: Social Media and the Storm
December 4, 2013 at 6:30 pm
Acclaimed photographers Benjamin Lowy and Stephen Wilkes join Sean Corcoran, the Museum’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.
Free for Museum members; $12 for students and seniors; $16 general public.
