ABOUT THE CALENDAR:
The After The Storm wall Calendar was created after the great response we had from making the book (See more about book below). The Calendar features some pictures that were used in the book paired with images taken after there was progress made in restoring the Jersey Shore. We again paired quotes we saw fit with the images used. The Calendar itself features a unique design. Each season is referenced by a unique color scheme on the left hand side of the page. The name of the month is bold but takes up minimal space so that optimal room was given to the calendar squares. Also featured in this calendar are all the holidays in 2014. Like with the book, all of the money made on the Calendar is going directly to Architecture For Humanity. They have vowed to help rebuild the Jersey Shore and have kept good on their promise. Please help us continue to raise money for this beloved place. If you have any questions about an order please contact us by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are unfortunately sold out of books!
About The Book:
Two days after Hurricane Sandy hit, I was on the island surveying the damage to my family’s home. I spent the afternoon walking around Seaside Heights, Ortley Beach and Seaside Park. The devastation I saw was incomprehensible. I had my camera and started snapping pictures of everything that I saw. My office in Lower Manhattan was closed for 2 weeks due to flooding and lack of electricity and when I finally returned to work and showed my pictures to some colleagues they encouraged me to do something with the images. I decided to make this book. I reached out to friends and family to send me a quote stating what the shore means to them or a memory of the Jersey shore. The project quickly took on a life of its own and as the word spread about it I was receiving quotes for the book from complete strangers who were nice enough to share their thoughts/ experiences. There are over 90 pictures most of which I took; a few others were donated by friends and they are scattered throughout the pages. The responses were overwhelming. What You Will Find Inside The book is a compilation of images and quotes from people that have ties to the Jersey Shore and are committed to rebuilding. It is raw emotion. It has a simple layout with a quote on one page accompanying an image. The quotes and images were not meant to match up but in some cases they do. This happened naturally and is what I think gives this book a spirit of its own. The layout is not over worked which allows all the pictures and words to carry the book. The entire proceeds from the book are being donated to Architecture for Humanities ‘Restore the Shore’ so that we can help rebuild the beaches of New Jersey Visit the After The Storm Facebook Page
