BEYOND GROUND ZERO: FACES OF NYC ON SEPTEMBER 11, 2001
 
As a former resident of Manhattan I have great affection and respect for New York City and its aggregate culture.  Thus, upon learning of the attacks on the World Trade Center while visiting NYC on 11 September 2001, I decided to embark upon a journey which began at West 52nd Street and Broadway, and terminated approximately eight blocks from Ground Zero.  My goal was to photograph the responses of New Yorkers to this tragedy.  These images provide an overview of the predominant calm resolve and extraordinary sense of community I witnessed.
