It has been a trying few weeks in the NY area with countless days without heat and internet and power and all the indulgences of modern day society. We were fortunate enough to not sustain any damage to our home but unfortunately not all fared as well. I was asked to photograph in Staten Island in one of the areas that was hardest hit by the storm. While I am not normally drawn to still life images, that is what I seemed to focus on amidst all of the chaos. There were hauntingly beautiful images of the pieces of lives that are forever changed. It was a truly humbling day.
