Earlier this year, Ingvar had the opportunity to photograph two of the three Tokelau boys who survived 51 harrowing days at sea.  The shoot was almost as much of an adventure, but the resulting images (and the opportunity to meet the boys in person) was worth it.  Last week Ingvar sent over a few out takes from the shoot, like the one above. Read the full story of the boys, their adventure and their rescue here.  It’s riveting. 

MARCO GROB + TIME: 9/11 PORTRAITS OF RESILIENCE

September 9, 2011


 

For much of the summer, Marco and his team traversed the US filming and photographing key figures from September 11th.  Politicians. Pundits. Planners. Artists. Survivors. Each one was gracious enough to share their memory of that day and how the events effected their lives.  Marco is abundantly pleased to have been a part of the project, and we are honored to share it with you.  See the entire project (with accompanying videos) here.

LYLE OWERKO: 9/11

September 8, 2011

 

On September 11th, 2001, Lyle was just arriving home from a trip from Africa.  When he heard about the first plane hitting the World Trade Center, he rushed down, camera in hand.  The images he took that day have become iconic and in the ten years since, Lyle has become as much a part of the story as a documentarian of the events of that day.  Here are two recent interviews about his images and experience.

LYLE OWERKO for CBC NEWS

September 1, 2011

Lyle was recently interviewed by the CBC News about his iconic photo of the World Trade Center from 9-11. The interview is pretty moving.  See the whole thing here.  An excerpt is below.

On Sept. 11, 2001, photographer Lyle Owerko’s camera bag sat beside his door, still packed with multiple cameras and lenses from a trip to Africa. Jet-lagged, he was sitting in his apartment in New York’s Tribeca neighbourhood when the attack on the World Trade Center began.

“I heard the first plane crash…. It sounded so close,” Owerko said. The 43-year-old photographer, born in Calgary, raced onto the street and began shooting. The pictures he took were from a street-level viewpoint, bringing an immediacy and intimacy to the horror of the scene.
