Poor Nigel Barker!

The former America's Next Top Model judge and “Sexy Noted Fashion Photographer” is a victim of Hurricane Sandy. His New York City apartment in the West Village was wrecked and he still doesn’t have power. On top of that, he told Page Six he spent Wednesday trying to rescue his photo negatives — some as old as from 20 years ago — which were stuck under seven feet of water for three days.

Not only did he have professional images from ad campaigns, he also had shots of his children — plus a photo from the first time he met his wife, Christen. “I photographed her the day I met her,” Nigel told Page Six, “and that picture I sent to my mom and said, ‘I’m going to marry this girl’ — and I did.”

Aww! We miss our Nigel. But things are going well for him on a professional front. He is the host of Naomi Campbell’s new show, The Face. (It premieres February on Oxygen.) And he also got to work with Taylor Swift, shooting photos of her over the course of eight hours for a new book called 8 Hours/Taylor Swift. Check out those photos here.

So even if his apartment doesn’t have power, he’s still a powerhouse in the fashion industry and a superhero husband!
