“Faces of Ground Zero-10 Years Later” shot with Spiderliteshttp://westcottu.com/photo-lighting-blog/news/faces-of-ground-zero-10-years-later-shot-with-spiderlites/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=faces-of-ground-zero-10-years-later-shot-with-spiderlites http://westcottu.com/photo-lighting-blog/news/faces-of-ground-zero-10-years-later-shot-with-spiderlites/#comments Mon, 29 Aug 2011 17:16:04 +0000 http://fjwestcott.com/blog/?p=2892 We recently received an email from Drew Gurian who is the Photography Assistant to Joe McNally. After September 11, Joe embarked on a massive portrait project that became known as "Faces of Ground Zero". In this project he photographed rescue workers, family members and other effected by 9/11 on the world's only giant polaroid camera (3x9 foot polaroids). The photos became an exhibit which was staged at Grand Central Station, Rockefeller Center, and traveled to multiple stops around the world. It also became a book, which raised over two million dollars for the relief efforts of downtown public schools affected by the tragedy.

Now, ten years later, Joe & Drew embarked on an update to the original project, taking still portraits of many of the the original subjects as well as doing documentary-stye video interviews with many of the people as well.
