The recently funded book project #SANDY will be having a Book Launch Event this month. #SANDY is a book project that compiled documentary photographs of Hurricane Sandy from the Instagram feeds of many acclaimed photographers, including  Hank Willis Thomas, Benjamin Lowy, Stephen Wilkes, Michael Christopher Brown, Ruddy Roye, Andrew Quilty and Ed Kashi (VII).

The Book Launch Event will take place Tuesday evening, October 29th from 6:00-8:00PM. Held at Hous Projects – 31 Howard Street at Crosby (2nd Floor), this exciting event will provide many activities. At the event there will be a silent auction of thirty 11×11″ photographs from #SANDY to benefit Occupy Sandy’s project, Sandy Storyline. There will also be signed books available for purchase and pick-up by backers of the book’s IndieGogo campaign. Postcards and raffle items will also be available at the event. Refreshments will be served.
