While Hurricane Sandy caused billions of dollars of property damage, for many, the floodwaters also damaged priceless photos. On February 2nd and 3rd, Operation Photo Rescue, a non-profit that was founded by two photojournalists after Hurricane Katrina, is headed to New York to digitize, restore and reprint photographs damaged by the storm. Operation Photo Rescue is inviting anyone with photos damaged by Sandy to bring in up to 20 photos to be evaluated and potentially restored. You get to keep your originals, the re-printed ones will be mailed and shipped to you at no cost. This is an awesome idea, and an awesome gesture. With enough time and money, entire homes can be re-built, but things like photographs are seemingly gone forever. Not this time, thanks to Operation Photo Rescue, which will be hosted by the School of Visual Arts Masters in Digital Photography program. Walk-ins are encouraged, but follow me on twitter @shellypalmer or visit ShellyPalmer.com to find out how you can make an appointment.
