Hurricane Photo by CSI Student Wins CUNY Photo Challenge

December 10, 2012

David Rodberg has won First Place in the CUNY Student Photo Challenge.

David Rodberg, a CSI sophomore who is a Cinema Studies major, has won First-Place honors in the CUNY Student Photo Challenge for November.

Rodberg snapped the photo, entitled, “Reflections of the Storm,” after Superstorm Sandy roared through the area, capturing the reflection of a church in his neighborhood in the flood waters that the storm left behind.

Commenting on his motivation to take the picture, Rodberg says, “The morning after Hurricane Sandy devastated my neighborhood, I felt the need to document one of the most traumatic moments of my life by watching the high tide come back in, down my street.” He adds, “I find it interesting that there is a rich level of surrealism to this photograph, when there was only a mere perspective change of reality.”

In his spare time, Rodberg notes that he enjoys “photography, watching film, playing the drums with my band, and spending time with my girlfriend.”

Looking to the future, he states that he has “always wanted to work as a cinematographer in the Union (ASC).”

More information on the CUNY Student Photo Challenge is available online.
