A charitable effort to restore photos destroyed by the super storm
When Hurricane Sandy rolled through the eastern part of the US last year, it brought with it unprecedented destruction. As part of the recovery process, the not-for-profit organization, Operation Photo Rescue will be fixing up cherished photos destroyed by the storm.
The event will be taking place the weekend of February 2-3, and will be hosted by the School of Visual Arts Masters in Digital Photography program (133 West 21st Street, Room 101c, New York, NY). People can bring up to 20 photos, which are digitally captured, repaired, printed, and then shipped back to the owners at no cost. You can make a reservation in advance, but walk-ins are being offered depending on availability.
You can check out the website for more info if you want to have your photos fixed up or if you'd just like to donate or volunteer to help out the effort.
