Stephen Wilkes was commissioned to capture photographs of Hurricane Sandy. Soon after his project was complete, he felt a need to return back to those same areas and, for himself, document the aftermath.

And so, on Nov 4th, he rented a helicopter and flew over some of the most hard-struck areas, including the New Jersey shore where he shot these stunning images of The Star Jet roller coaster at Casino Pier amusement park.

"I’ve often found that there is great power in telling difficult stories in a beautiful way. I wanted to try and comprehend the scale of this storm. The only way for me to capture Sandy’s destructive fury was from above."

Via.
