|See the project on:||On October 13, at 11 AM doors will open to the public at 26 Wooster
Street, in Soho; there a collection of photos and text from any one who
has contributed to The September 11 Photo Project will be on display.
The concept is to show this tragedy on a human level and to give a forum
for people throughout the community to submit work of their own to add
to the project. People from all walks of life have been taking pictures
in response to the tragedy, many for the first time. The project
encourages people to submit photos with text that are personally
meaningful so that a community voice emerges. It will continue to grow
as it is shown, much in the spirit of the spontaneous shrines that
sprang up all over New York in the days after the tragedy.
The goal of the project (which is not simply a photography or art
exhibition) is to show the tragedy on a human level, starting in New
York City and then traveling to other locations throughout the country.
The exhibition will grow as people who have been touched by these
events continue to add their personal photos and words.
A catalog of the project will be created and sold with the proceeds
going to the victims and their families of the tragedy. Eventually the
project will be donated to a museum for conservation and further use.
The September 11 Photo Project is a non-profit project in partnership
with the New York City Firefighters Burn Center Foundation.
The project has been founded by Michael Feldschuh, a Wall Street
professional who witnessed the attack, and is run with James Austin
Murray, who is a Tribeca artist and also a New York City firefighter.
