Many New Yorkers have made their way back to normalcy since Hurricane Sandy first struck three months ago, but while some residents were lucky enough to simply lose power, some found themselves in life-threatening situations and later dealt with extreme property damage. Of course, buildings can be repaired over time, but damage to personal and highly sentimental belongings cannot. Family photographs in particular have been irreparably damaged — that is, unless you have access to digital restoration services. Luckily, Operation Photo Rescue, an organization founded by photojournalists Dave Ellis and Becky Sell after Hurricane Katrina, is making its way to New York to digitize, restore and reprint photographs on February 2nd-3rd. The non-profit organization has teamed up with Chase and The School of Visual Arts (SVA) for imaging stations, software and volunteers.
