'New York in Black': Photos of Lower Manhattan After Sandy

Amid the heartbreaking destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy, some of the most shocking images to emerge were of Lower Manhattan. Although it wasn’t hit as hard as some parts of New York City, the normally bright and frenetic area lost power and was plunged into darkness for days. Trendland points us to photographer Christophe Jacrot’s New York in Black, a beautiful and disturbing series that captures that time more vividly than any other photos we’ve seen.
