October 29, 2013

One year ago today, Ed Kashi/VII set out to document the impending Hurricane Sandy, that would soon strike the east coast, leaving a wake of unmerciful death and destruction. Posting to  TIME’s Instagram feed, Ed, along with other photographers created an up to the minute documentary feed of  Hurricane Sandy’s impact. A culmination of these images can be seen in TIME’s Lightbox from October 2012. For the one year anniversary of this Superstorm, Ed Kashi will be working with NBC News to revisit the locations he documented last year.

Starting at 1:00 pm today, Ed will be retracing his footsteps and re-photographing the same locations he was  at one year prior, down to the hour. A project highlighting the recovery, change, and continued suffering present in some of these places, Ed will be taking over NBC’s Instagram feed and posting images from last year followed by new photos of the same places one year later. You can follow the journey on NBC’s Instagram feed @NBCNews as well as their blog: http://photoblog.nbcnews.com/sandy
