The exhibit, featuring the work of Shark River Hills-based photographer Kevin R. Burkitt, 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.”
