Picturing Sandy's Aftermath
Hurricane Sandy was obviously a huge disaster that people in the Northeast are fighting their way out of. But even now, almost two weeks after the hurricane wreaked havoc on one of the most populous areas of the country, I don't feel like I have a real understanding of the damage. That changed, though, when a friend linked to the Big Picture blog from Boston.com, which always does a great job curating news photography. And it was through this site and its photographs that I felt like I started to gain a real, meaningful understanding of the damage—and the plight of the people forced to deal with it firsthand.
