The brief memorial show at Edwynn Houk Gallery is a critical marker in time- the 10 year anniversary of the September 11 attacks. One of the only photographers permitted entry to Ground Zero, Joel Meyerwitz, documented the aftermath of the World Trance Center attack for 9 months. In all over 8,000 images were made to record events that tribute the work and bravery of firefighters, police, and construction workers and show the slow transformation of the site from disaster area to level ground. The images have been seen by over 4 million people in more than 200 cities around the globe. The project was sponsored by the Museum of the City of New York which holds digital files in their archives.

Works are grand and layered deep with emotion- sorrow, loss, but also hope. The power and strength of America is embedded in the work and inspiration raises from the ashes of destruction.
