Long exposure photos taken after hurricane Sandy show a very different New York than the normal city of bright lights.

After four days without power, lower Manhattan has become a shadow of its former self. Hurricane Sandy has left thousands without power, fresh food or water.

Yet life goes on in the dark zone, as cars zip down darkened streets without traffic lights or street lamps. Photographer Randy Scott Slavin has taken some remarkable long exposure pictures of the luminescent trails left by passing cars.

The photographer describes the project on his Facebook page:

New York City is always bright. Street lights, business marquees, light from apartments and car headlights merge to light every corner of the city streets, even on the darkest nights. It is the night after NYC was decimated by Hurricane Sandy, downtown NYC is in the midst of a power outage that has plunged it into complete darkness. I felt the call to hit the eerily dark streets and show New York as it is rarely seen. Trekking around with my tripod I was able to get the long exposures necessary to see in the dark.
