The exhibit includes about 25 photographers, ranging from amateurs to professionals. The styles range from documentary to landscape, and include color and black and white prints.

I asked a few of the photographer’s about their photos. Here are some of their stories.

Like many of you I’m sure, I have been watching The Weather Channel and network television wanting to see what is happening 3000 miles away. Wanting to connect with what people are going through.

I have also turned to one of my favorite online photography sites, TIME LightBox. Photojournalism is such a powerful medium to portray the human condition, and TIME is doing a great job sharing amazing images with us. Time, Getty, Corbis, Zuma Press, AP, Reuters. just to name a few agencies, have their photographers on the ground and in the air covering the storm. Take a look!

Q&A with Bill Green
