As many of you have either heard or experienced, Hurricane Sandy left a trail of destruction in the Caribbean and along the East Coast of the USA. While some of us in New York were fortunately unscathed, there are some true horror stories coming out of this. Logan Hicks has decided to be proactive and in a benevolent effort will be selling the print “SoHo Illuminated by a food cart” until November 10th to raise funds for the Red Cross. 100% of the profits raised will be donated directly to the Red Cross. This is an opportunity for us to give back and to own nice art for doing so.
Hurricane Sandy has destroyed entire towns and families in the tri-state New York area. While my own family and belongings escaped any real damage, many were not as fortunate. As we came through the hurricane, I thought ‘that wasn’t so bad’ – and in my neighborhood, it wasn’t. Then the news channels started to parade the misery of communities like Staten Island and Breezy Point across the screen. They were decimated. Entire houses washed away, lives lost, and cherished possessions destroyed.
My good friend John Lee from @emehtagency made a suggestion that I sell one of the photos taken of downtown Manhattan during the power loss to help raise money for those in need. It sounded like the perfect way for me to assist. The conditions which produced amazing photographs for me were also the same conditions that have displaced families. It’s the obligation of those that have, to help those who do not. So I am helping the way I am best suited for – through my art.
