Those of you who have Twitter and Facebook accounts....help get the word out. We're 2 images shy of reaching our first 1,000 (ONE THOUSAND!!!) restorations. And could easily meet that goal today, but will be holding back so as to not be over-shadowed by Valentine's Day. Consider sharing your favorite before/after images c/o careforsandy.org/albums or flickr.com/photos/careforsandy and maybe the press will latch on, to attract new volunteers so that we can continue to help hurricane Sandy families.

Thousands more are still in need of skilled attention.

Check out our talented Twitter Ambassador's gallery show: "ANTICI……PATION". Opening reception from 6-8pm tonight at SoHo Photo Gallery (15 White Street). Congrats Mike!

Exhibition Dates: December 4, 2013 – January 4, 2014


"Connections to the past, the nature of light both visible and invisible and the act of seeing itself—or preparing to see—are the subjects under consideration in December through the photographs of six artists at Soho Photo Gallery. Images range in technique and process, including the 19th century impressionistic bromoil printing."

NEEDED: NY-located photo clean-up/ photo scan volunteer w' car

This post is for my NY volunteers. We're not accepting any new 2014 family photos for restoration due to the thousands still awaiting assistance,. At least until I feel like every existing family has received a generous number of restorations. But this waitlist registration memo from a granny who lives all around who lost everything to Sandy, really struck a chord. I'm hoping to find someone with a car who would be willing to drive to Oceanside, NY (on Long Island) to help hery. At minimum Id like to make sure she can start using  the trunk of her car again. More importantly, get those moldy photos out of those bags to inhibit further mold growth, get them aerated and dried and scanned. This might involve multiple trips depending on the condition of the photos.

UPDATE: have just learned the photos were placed in the garbage bags while still wet. Yikes. Might not be able to save them, but...Step one will involve no scanning. Simply damage-control + clean-up. The volunteer will need to have a large, clean, dry interior space (like a garage) with plenty of ventilation for placing the photos out to dry for assessment and future scanning. Which will likely mean that most city dwellers like myself won't have the necessary space. Mold is toxic and should not be inhaled. And anything that sewage has touched will stink like an outhouse, so you won't want the images anywhere near a living space.

I can loan the following: heavy-duty protective face masks, gloves, scanner, laptop (if needed), spray air dusters and a thumbnail drive .(Would require pick up in Park Slope, Brooklyn)

If willing, please send an email to careforsandy (at) gmail

Here is a portion of the woman's registration memo:

"I lost everything i owned in SSS. There was 4-5 ft water. There r very few family photos, saved if they were framed & high up-ie: on iano or furniture. All gone. Albums were on a bookcase, lower shelves, as were videos.All of my own childhood pics, poarents, dating back to the 1940's-50's, circa Bklyn, N.Y. Also all of my own childrenn  growing up in Oceanside, school, camps, vacations, etc. 
And a lot of my granchildren. But w granakids, most were on comp so I can get. Thousands in total gone. Were in the floods, moldy, oil & waste in water. I pulled outta water & put in garb bgs each w a damprid enclosed & have been in trunk of my car  a year & 1/2 now. Odor. ( I kept my car, since I vacated the nite b/4. I lived over 4 mos in a motel rm. If anything can be retored, salvaged, put on disk, I would be very grateful. I don't use trunk of my car. I'm very affected & upset & am in treatment...These 2 albums mean the world to me. My son & daughter r in their 40's now, & reside in other states. I live alone. I have received this info from the JCC, Oceanside,NY. A social worker there told me she got this info from the Camera Club there."
