NEW YORK, NY.- In collaboration with the Museum of the City of New York (City Museum), the International Center of Photography presents Rising Waters: Photographs of Hurricane Sandy, an exhibition documenting the damage and recovery from one of the worst storms to hit the east coast.

Drawn from an open call for submissions from the public that drew over 7,000 entries, Rising Waters takes place in a two-story Victorian house on Governors Island, formerly an officer’s residence, alongside numerous other exhibitions by New York institutions, and features over 100 works in both print and digital form by more than 90 photographers. The exhibition includes work from professional photographers as well as community members and bystanders who photographed the effects of the devastating storm and the subsequent recovery efforts.

The second floor of the exhibition space houses related projects from ICP including 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 of the International Center of Photography.

“The powerful images from Hurricane Sandy, by professional and non-professional photographers, demonstrate the depth of the hurricane’s impact and the extraordinary role the image plays in our experience of events,” said Mark Robbins, Executive Director of ICP. “This off-site collaborative installation, along with a presentation of Mendel’s Drowning World series, and work from the ICP school community, herald the diverse ways in which ICP operates as a cultural institution.”

This exhibition is a preview of a much larger exhibition co-produced by ICP and City Museum that will be held at City Museum’s uptown galleries in November.
