Road signs warn drivers as Hurricane Sandy bears down on the East Coast, Montclair, N.J., Oct. 29, 2012. The super storm ravaged much of the Eastern Seaboard, leaving many dead and billions of dollars in damage.

From images in his hometown of Montclair, N.J., where neighbors lost their home to a fallen tree, to coverage of the destruction wrought by Sandy along the Jersey Shore, Kashi’s portfolio represents an intriguing way to cover an emerging news event for a major publication. The implications for the future of visual journalism are a challenge to the ways of the past.
