I'm very proud to have contributed a handful of photos to the Here is New York photo exhibit which opened shortly following 9/11. It began in a storefront in SOHO and has since traveled the world. Its been acquired by the Library of Congress and New York Historical Society - the images will endure. I was really pleased to see many of the images this morning hanging on the fence surrounding the WTC. The huge prints look fantastic and are really finally being displayed where they should be. I rarely encourge people to visit the site, but these photos should give you a reason.

These images are were all shot with a Pentax K1000 with a broken light meter and iso 800 film - and then the prints were scanned... ah, the olden days! How did we get along before high resolution digitial???

Thanks, but actually I should clarify - only "On the Bus" was included in the Here is NY show and is not on display right now. A few of my other shots were also part of the exhibit. I've been told that the whole thing will be on display when the permanant memorial is built - they better, because I've signed enough paperwork... :)

still, though - it's an honor to be a part of it, no matter how small... :)

I also get to put on my resume that I've had work shown at the Museum of Modern Art - Here is NY was on display there for a couple months too. Its pretty much the only way my work would make it in there! :)

WOW!
Congrats!

I've was contemplating checking out what they've done at the site recently. Maybe I'll actually go now. I also don't really like going to the site. It seems like an odd tourist destination to me like the Arlington National Cemetery...
