Jay Peg and other budding photographers captured some of the most heartfelt images with this Hurricane Sandy photography series.

Though the natural disaster occurred a few months ago, these photos bring you back to that dreadful time where many people's lives quickly changed overnight. These photos were taken by five emerging photographers who took these photos directly after the storm hit. Though they had some ethical qualms to grapple with due to the fact they would be taking pictures of those in already extremely vulnerable states, they decided to go through with it because of the held belief that "it was important that the world be made aware of the extent of the damage that this storm has caused."

This series of Hurricane Sandy photography is able to instantly evoke a strong sense of emotion, which makes you feel as if you were there yourself.
