Snap the magazine brought to you by Hipstamatic published an article in their November issue featuring some of my photos shot with the Hipstamatic app of Hurricane Sandy's aftermath and recovery in Brooklyn and The Rockaways, along with images by photographers Lucas and Laura Buick. 

Included in the same November issue of Snap was an article about an Incredibooth project from the Facebook group Hipstamatic New England which I contributed to. Photographers from 4 continents were each given a booth and film and asked to think outside the box of the usual usage of the Incredibooth app. Scenes from the motion picture Diner / Valery Rizzo, Incredibooth / Noah Fenz.
