MIDDLETOWN, NJ — More than 60 photographs documenting the aftermath and recovery from Superstorm Sandy are on display in Brookdale Community College’s Center for Visual Arts Gallery as part of the new "91 Days; Countless Nights” exhibit.

Featuring the work of Shark River Hills-based photographer Kevin R. Burkitt, the exhibit includes dozens of long-exposure photos taken throughout Monmouth and Ocean counties from November 2012 to April 2015.

The images, captured exclusively between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m., document the radical transformation of local communities in the wake of the storm, rather than the “iconic” images of destruction that appeared on the national news, said Burkitt.

“Growing up where I did, I never appreciated the quality and the character of the structures where we lived. Within 48 hours, it was gone,” said Burkitt, a Manasquan native. “I’m hoping this exhibit will help people remember what it was like five years ago, and to appreciate both the power of nature and the beauty of the world around them. It can all change so quickly, and for many people, it will never be the same again.”

The exhibit, which is free and open to all, is part of Brookdale’s 2017-18 Visiting Artist Series, funded in part by a grant from the Monmouth County Arts Council. It will be on display through November 12.

Brookdale's CVA Gallery is located 765 Newman Springs Road, Lincroft. Parking is in lots 1 and 2. For more information call 732-224-2881 or visit www.brookdalecc.edu/events.
