Sandy coverage is as important now as it was five months ago. The recovery effort seems to have reached a turning point where short term solutions are either being replaced by long term solutions or by nothing at all. The major cleanup is nearing an end and for so many the long slow road to recovery is only beginning. Simultaneously there is widespread renewal as businesses reopen their doors and families move back into their homes. I hope that this issue will help make people aware of the continuing struggles Sandy has caused and will serve as an unbiased document of this page in history.
Jay Peg's was created with the sole purpose of getting high grade photography into the public eye. In the digital world, too often solid work sits idly on hard drives when it can so easily be released to the digital world. This publication showcases documentary based work from emerging photographers. It is intended to provide new angles to topics viewers think they know, with the intention of creating fresh perspectives derived from our own.
All of the projects are ongoing. The photographers featured have roots in the New York City Area and are available to freelance.
