Get Well Soon, Staten Island

The effects of Hurricane Sandy are still being felt across the tri-state area. Photographer Giles Clarke, a British expat and good friend of Tea & Sympathy, has been documenting the extent of the devastation on Staten Island. His moving pictures show how people need to remain strong and look out for one another. Our thoughts are with everyone who didn’t make it through the storm as easily as us.

“What I saw in Staten Island a couple of days ago will never leave me. I was in areas that had seen no responders or emergency services and local residents were going about the business of clearing up and dealing with the shock.”

“I hope my pictures convey the terrible scale of the storm but also have a beauty that might signify the coming together of the human spirit in this very difficult time.”
