The devastation that Superstorm Sandy wreaked on our region was a wake-up call to everyone. As heroic and committed as the response to this storm was, the problems will be with us for a long time. By keeping the memory of Sandy alive, the goal of the show is to find images that epitomize hopes to preserve what makes our lives meaningful and productive.
Photos may be submitted from July 28 through September 5, 2014 by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Specific guidelines about file size and quantity are available on the library website at www.bernardsvillelibrary.org/superstorm.photos. Photos might illustrate “before and after,” “the fury of the storm,” “recovery,” “restoration,” irreplaceable treasures,” or “planning for the future,” and “visionary approaches.”
Judges for the show are Dwight Hiscano, a widely published and highly collected photographer; Dave DesRochers, a member of the North American Nature Photography Association; and Philip Witt and Rebecca Witt, long-time volunteers at the Scherman Hoffman Wildlife Sanctuary where they co-lead the photography workshop series.
The exhibition will be on view at Bernardsville Library from November 2 to November 30, with a public reception on Saturday, November 8 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm. From there, a portion of it will travel to the New Jersey Audubon facility in Plainsboro for exhibit in December and then to the Scherman Hoffman Wildlife Sanctuary in Bernardsville where it will be on view in January and February 2015.
