NYC Unplugged, Long Exposure Photos of New York City During the Power Outage Blackouts

NYC

NYC Unplugged is a beautiful series of long exposure photographs by Randy Scott Slavin taken during the recent blackouts in New York City (due to Hurricane Sandy). You can see all of the images at Slavin’s Facebook page. We have featured Slavin’s photos before in the post titled Alternate Perspectives, Distorted Panoramas by Randy Scott Slavin.

New York City is always bright. Street lights, business marquees, light from apartments and car headlights merge to light every corner of the city streets, even on the darkest nights. It is the night after NYC was decimated by Hurricane Sandy, downtown NYC is in the midst of a power outage that has plunged it into complete darkness. I felt the call to hit the eerily dark streets and show New York as it is rarely seen. Trekking around with my tripod I was able to get the long exposures necessary to see in the dark.
