“91 Days, Countless Nights” Shows Destruction Caused by Superstorm Sandy

Superstorm Sandy devastated the Jersey Shore eight years ago, and we are still feeling the effects of it today. In support of Brookdale’s Global Citizenship Project’s 2020 theme of Climate Change, the Bankier Library presents  photographer Kevin Burkitt’s exhibit “91 Days Countless Nights” which documents some of the physical destruction caused by Sandy in Monmouth County from 2012 through 2015 and his experience.

Every image in this collection was taken between 10 pm and 4 am. These haunting photos remind him of some of the darkest days, and sleepless nights, during the recovery and rebuilding process after Superstorm Sandy.

To date, this project has been shown in parts at: Morris Arts, Princeton Television, Main Street Gallery – Manasquan, and at Brookdale in the CVA Gallery in 2017.

This online presentation marks the first time that Burkitt will share images that are often left out of print or in-person shows. He is excited to share his work and hopes that a virtual presentation will spur new opportunities for this project going forward.

This free event will be held via Zoom on Tuesday, October 27 from 11:45 am to 1 pm. To register, please visit https://brookdalecc.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJAqd-mprTsqHNO9nIxC3Ou4Mbk-ccF4PkmS
