After witnessing the attacks on the morning of September 11th, I ended up volunteering for one day at the site,
which turned into running a canteen at the site for nearly 9 months. Getting to know the police, dock builders, PAPD, NYPD, FDNY,
(and many other acronyms!), ironworkers, etc. was so interesting and rewarding. When workers at the site discovered I was a photographer
they asked me to photograph the recovery effort. Anyone with a camera at the site was arrested immediately yet for some reason they
allowed me to shoot freely. I chose not to photograph any of the honor guards, nor have I profited from these images.
