9/11 Search for Those Missing

The “Pit” at the World Trade Center during the cleanup following the attack

In the days following the attack on the World Trade Center, the focus was on cleaning up the site and finding any remains of those lost. This shot, looking into the “Pit”, was taken from the damaged offices of some of our colleagues who witnessed the attack at very close quarters. As their office was partially destroyed, we took them into our studio on Union Square and I had the opportunity to take this photograph when helping them move some of their equipment and records out of their old space. In the foreground, the battered but still essenitally intact remains of  Fritz Koenig’s sphere sculpture can be seen. It has now been relocated as part of the Memorial landscape.
