More than 650 amateur and novice photographers from across the region responded – many sending multiple photos — before the original deadline in March. Given the depth of interest, the Museum is calling for additional images documenting the recovery process during a second open-call period to he held July 1 to August 1, 2013.

The Museum of the City of New York’s Call for Submissions invites both novice and professional photographers to submit images depicting the stages of preparation, destruction and rebuilding for a juried exhibition to coincide with the one-year anniversary of the storm. Consideration will particularly be paid to before and after images of the same subject, highlighting the dramatic effect of the storm.

The exhibition will mark the Museum’s latest foray into collecting and recognizing the photographic works of people from all walks of life as they capture pivotal moments in the city’s history.
