    Large format hurricane Sandy disaster porn- which photographer will get it out first?

    Misrach? Andrew Moore? Chris Jordan? Joel Sternfeld? Maybe an emerging photographer? What's the likelihood that it'll be tied in with a charity? I don't mean to be flip or to diminish the extent of the tragedy but I'm certain that we'll see this project drop sometime in the near future and most likely with ny times mag promotion and an aperture magazine spread. Who wants to place bets?

    It'll be a lot better if some nudes can be fit in somewhere. Maybe Spencer Tunick?

    I'm sure some LF work will come out, but I was struck by how much of the coverage, even in mainstream news sources, was done with cell phones and instagram:

    And I was struck by the number of images that were circulating as being from the storm, but weren't -- even some that were taken years earlier.

    Hey, back in 2006 I won a SFMOMA membership playing this game. A blog called Mao: Art Obsession (a wealth finance guy in NYC and the joys of chasing and collecting photos--fun!) put up a handful of images of Katrina's aftermath by "name" art photographers that were damn hard to tell apart. I guessed correctly but it was tough.

    Maybe we should get some prize money ready and do it again?

    More to the point, I am surprised that no members of this forum have posted any post hurricane images in the "post your images" forum yet.
