The Rockaways, Post-Sandy by Amanda Kirkpatrick

View all 10 Photos

The terrifying storm Sandy stole the identity of the Rockaways in Queens, NY. She slammed into the shore October 29, 2012, her path of devastation mesmerizing everyone.  These raw photos of the Rockaway community display homes weakened by the fierce winds, left barely able to stand.  Roofs are sunken, structures submit in complete collapse against the rip of Sandy’s power.

The series of photographs is captured by Amanda Kirkpatrick.  Her reflections, “After looking at so many photos of the destruction in the Rockaways I was drawn to photograph in a broad and clinical manner, to document the storm damage as purely as possible from the perspective of the transformation of structure within the context of a familiar public space.”

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
