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.
