Faces of Ground Zero Exhibit Opens Today

In the aftermath of 9/11, internationally acclaimed photographer and Nikon shooter Joe McNally created 246 life-size portraits of the rescuers, volunteers, survivors, victims’ family members and other individuals whose lives were affected by the tragedy. This historic collection was seen by over a million people during a six-city tour, became a popular book and helped generate over $2 million for the relief effort. It is considered by many museum and art professionals to be the most significant artistic endeavor to evolve from the 9/11 tragedy.He entitled the exhibit Faces of Ground Zero: Portraits of the Heroes of September 11, 2001.

Earlier this year—a decade later—McNally revisited many of his original subjects to find out where they are now and how 9/11 has affected their lives. Using the latest Nikon cameras and equipment, he created stunning new digital images and exclusive video interviews to accompany his original portraits. "It's been a truly amazing experience to recreate this exhibit," said McNally. "It's an honor to be able to visually tell the ongoing stories of the incredible people I first met 10 years ago who continue to be an inspiration every day."These are some of the heroes of September 11, 2001—ten years later.
