“Looking On”, Olympus Passion, November 2018

For Earth Below

I am very happy to announce that “Olympus Passion” published a portion of my project, “Looking On, Watching the Building of the Freedom Tower”. Many thanks go out to Mauricio and Hugo of “Olympus Passion” for doing a great edit and a wonderful layout. Last, but not least, a huge HUGE thank you to Matteo Ceschi, fellow F/50 member!

This project came out of my experience of witnessing the tragedy of 9/11. So many images were taken that day. I was so overwhelmed with the events taking place before me, I never lifted my camera to my eye. Some years later, finding myself working downtown, walking by the construction of the memorial and new tower everyday, did this project begin to unfold. This is my homage to that tragic day.

“Looking On” – Watching the building of the Freedom Tower.

For Earth Below

For those that follow this blog, and for those who are just visiting, for the past two years or so, I have been documenting the visitors to the One World Trade Center site, a.k.a., “The Freedom Tower”. It is still an ongoing project. I have documented quiet contemplation, tears, awe, and just general interest in looking onto the construction area. The images do not show the tower at all except in reflections on walls, sunglasses, or views in one’s camera and cell phone screens. My intention was to capture a thought provoking collection of expressions, emotions, and the diverse ethnic make-up of the visitors.
