Portraits from Ground Zero [DVD]
Tracking down the survivors of 9/11.Everyone remembers September 11, 2001 in different ways. Some remember exactly where they were when they first heard the terrible news of the terrorist attacks on New York and The Pentagon. Others recall the shocking scenes on TV as the drama played out live on screens across the world. For photographer Andrea Booher, who had unprecedented access to the rescue and recovery operations at Ground Zero, the images she captured that day serve as an eternal reminder of what took place. A firefighter searching for the body of his life-long friend; a teenage girl mourning her stepfather; a Franciscan friar ministering to the dead; the future FDNY Chief of Department worrying about a potential building collapse. These are just a few of the thousands of people captured by Booher s camera. A decade on from that fateful day, Booher uses the battered green notebook she carried at the Trade Center to track down the people in nearly a dozen of her favourite pictures, and gets them to tell, for the first time, the riveting personal stories behind the photographs.
