Abstract/Artist Statement

How easy it is for us to be professional. In a company packed with so much talent and so much experience, how easy it is for us to think of the news as something that happens only to someone else. How easy to forget that we are human, and that this time, we are the victims as well as the storytellers (The New York Times). Everyone will remember where he or she was the day The World Trade Center towers went down on September 11, 2001, and even though we might not have had any connection to the event, we were all touched by that day. Have you ever wondered what it was like to be there, what it would have been like to look out your window and see this happening right before your eyes, or even be close enough to feel the heat and the impact of ash on your face, to wake up in the morning and know from this day forward, your life will never be the same again? For the employees at The New York Times this literally happened. Some were so close that they had to run into a shelter, in order to avoid getting hit by falling debris. This day changed the lives of these journalists forever.
