on friday night, i decided to walk home from work. i stopped and use the restroom at the time warner center and came across "faces of ground zero" exhibition there--a powerful display of life-sized polaroid portraits taken soon after september 11th.
i was fortunate to have seen the original display at grand central terminal, soon after the pictures were taken, in 2002. and later at rockefeller center. and on september 11th, i tend to take out the book and take a look at the portraits.
the camera is no longer usable, but the photographer was able to revisit & photograph some of his subjects 10 years on, which he partnered with the original photographs.
i am grateful to have serendipitously happen upon it again. you can see more here.
not that i really care, but i thought it was a bit bizarro that george clooney's former flame and dancing with the stars contestant (star? really?) elisabetta canalis had an arm band tattoo tribute to eminem. who knew? it's apparently now covered by some sort of floral motif. either way, bizarro.
