Aerial Photos of Hurricane Sandy by Stephen Wilkes
Stephen Wilkes works with TIME for a second time to document the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Stephen rented a helicopter and flew over some of the most devastated areas including the New Jersey shore, Breezy Point and Far Rockaway. Only through these aerial photographs can the full extent of Sandy's impact be comprehended.
Reflecting on the photographs, Stephen says: "It's my hope that these images serve as a wake up call...it's a reminder that we need to take special care of our fragile world."
The full TIME photo set is viewable in Stephen's portfolio.
