– posted by Sally

How Sandy Hit Rockaway is an ongoing narrative focusing on the residents of Rockaway in Queens, New York who have been affected by Hurricane Sandy.  This is the story of the unique obstacles to recovery facing each individual.

Almost a year after Hurricane Sandy hit the coastal areas of New York and New Jersey, the road to recovery is still long and hard. With so many images in the mass media depicting landscapes of devastation and disaster immediately after Hurricane Sandy, How Sandy Hit Rockaway focusses on the people affected by the disaster and the unique obstacles to recovery facing each individual. This powerful collection of emotive human faces brings to light the ongoing humanitarian issues of recovering after such an event. From public housing residents stuck in mold ridden apartments and small business owners paralysed by insurance to displaced families stuck in a hotel limbo for months on end, these are unique issue stories that need to be told. The people in this ongoing series are not just a fleeting news story. How Sandy hit Rockaway identifies with these individuals and makes us think about our relationship to the people of Rockaway recovering from such an enormous natural disaster and the issues this brings.

Kisha Bari has been working with the residents of the Rockaway Peninsula for over 10 months. Capturing intimate portraits and personal stories of how Hurricane Sandy has affected their lives, in both sober and uplifting forms, to raise awareness of the issues that New Yorkers are dealing with in the wake and recovery of such a disaster. A twenty-foot shipping container will house fourteen portraits alongside intimate audio interviews with these inspiring, resilient people.
