The Blackout

How power outage changes a night.

The Blackout - Series of 12 pictures.

On a steamy July night in 2019, Manhattan plunged into darkness: massive shutdown. New Yorkers and tourists flooded into the darkened streets, I decided to go strolling with them...

No street light, no traffic light: the only lights came from the cars, the emergency vehicles, and the cellphones used as flashlights. Far away, some neighborhoods have the power back, attracting the crowd.

A rare opportunity to take unusual pictures of New York City.
