Dear Friend,
This time I blog in English because of the book at hand. It is called Faces of Ground Zero and the pictures are from the great photographer Joe McNally. If you don't know Joe, please go ahead and check out his work! He is a Master behind the camera, a Master at Light and an even bigger Master at teaching.

Just a few days after 9/11 happened, he started doing these portraits with a "one-of-a-kind" camera in a studio just blocks away from Ground Zero. The pictures in this book repesent the portraits he took on 40x80 in. Polaroids. These "bigger-than-life" Polaroids where exhibited in the US shortly after. This book is a collection of the 150 portraits Joe took, to show the world the (often untold) heros of 9/11.

I hope you enjoyed the video! Here is the link to the Youtube video, I mentioned in the Article. The part about the book starts around Minute four!
