Faces of Ground Zero: Portraits of the heroes of September 11, 2001

Posted by liveBooks

The Faces of Ground Zero, Portraits of the Heroes of September 11, 2001 Collection, consist of 246 Giant Polaroids photographed by Joe McNally. These compelling, life-sized photos were shot during a three week period shortly after September 11, 2001, with additional images shot in 2002 on the garage-size, unique Giant Polaroid camera at Moby C Studio near Ground Zero in New York City. They represent a pictorial, emotional cross section of largely ordinary people who rose up to the challenges of that awful day, and did extraordinary things.

These pictures traveled to numerous cities, became a book, and proved to be a powerfully moving tribute to the collective heroism displayed on 9/11. This collection in its entirety has helped raise over two million dollars for the 9/11 relief effort. If you are interested in making a donation click here.
