"Faces of Ground Zero" Exhibit Opens Today

August 24th, 2011

Faces-of-ground-zero.jpgThe tragedy at the World Trade Center
that occurred nearly ten years ago is something that we won’t be
forgetting any time soon. It’s a major historic event, and one that
has spurred artists, songwriters, authors and photographers to
capture the moment in their own way.

Photographer Joe McNally chose to shift
the focus from remembering tragedy to highlighting the people that
were directly affected by the event. From families of victims to
firefighters that risked their lives trying to save those of others,
his book “Faces of Ground Zero, Portraits of the Heroes of
September 11, 2001” represents a moment in time with each of
these people.

Now, ten years later, McNally is taking
an updated version of the exhibition to the Time Warner Center in New
York. It’s free to get into thanks to a sponsorship by Nikon, and it
runs from today until September 12, 2011.
