In a bold journalistic move, TIME Magazine commissioned 5 professional photographers to cover the wrath of Hurricane Sandy via Instagram. Here we’ve compiled the most beautiful and powerful images from the experiment.

Michael Christopher Brown, Benjamin Lowy, Ed Kashi, Andrew Quilty and Stephen Wilkes explored the New York streets with iPhones to live-document people’s preparations, the power and the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

Working from different locations across the Atlantic seaboard, they captured ordinary people getting ready to greet the superstorm. And when Sandy made landfall the night of Oct. 29, they braved rising floodwaters, high winds and driving sheets of rain to photograph the storm’s impact on several communities.

Be sure to check out TIME Magazine’s full collection over here. To our American readers and all those affected, I wish you all the best!
