The night New York went dark
Many parts of the East Coast have been rendered unrecognizable by the fierce forces of Superstorm Sandy, but perhaps the largest and most noticeable change is the darkness that has descended on New York City.
Photographer Randy Scott Slavin turned this strange turn of events into an opportunity by taking a series of long-exposure photos entitled “NYC Unplugged.”
It is the night after NYC was decimated by Hurricane Sandy, downtown NYC is in the midst of a power outage that has plunged it into complete darkness. I felt the call to hit the eerily dark streets and show New York as it is rarely seen.
Unique photos.Posted by Kate Rinsema
