Photos of New York City with the Power Out

new york city blackout 1

When hurricane sandy hit the city of New York, it took out the power in the bustling metropolis and all the lights went out. That’s when photographer Christophe Jacrot hit the streets to capture some remarkable images of the “city that never sleeps.” If there was any time this metropolis had a chance to rest, it may have been for a very short time after the hurricane hit.

Jarcot was born in Paris in 1960, and was a theatre director before becoming a professional photographer. Some of his other works revolve around weather, which is a personal passion of his. He published his first book, Paris sous la pluie, by Chêne in 2007.
