On Saturday October 12th 2013, me and a few other photographers— plus hundreds of volunteers working with Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter’s Work Project and Habitat for Humanity— traveled to Union Beach, NJ which was devastated by Superstorm Sandy last year.

When I wasn’t being overwhelmed by stories of loss and/or resilience, I took some pictures.

“American Pie and Dancer”

I thought a cool place to photograph a young classical ballet dancer would be on the rickety back porch of a boardwalk business previously known as “American Pie” which happens to be right next to the Jersey Shore House featured on MTV’s hit reality show “Jersey Shore”. Classical Ballet is the Ying to Twerking’s Yang, no? Yeah Buddy!
