“91 Days, Countless Nights” is a self-initiated photography project that explores the post Hurricane Sandy landscape at night. Every image in the collection is taken at night. To create the effect of each photo, exposures are approximately seven to ten minutes each. Images are processed in Adobe Lightroom 5, and NIK Silver Efex Pro 2.
We choose to display these images as standouts because we want the image to run from end to end while retaining a contemporary look that is easy to display. The inspiration for this project is to tell the story of what is happening now. Shooting at night gives the project a distinct sense of sadness and desperation while telling the story of the daily progress to our shore communities.
This project started three weeks after Hurricane Sandy and will continue through November of 2014, before shooting ends for the year. Depending on “progress” this project will likely continue for several years. To come.
