Those Iconic 9/11 Photos-- From Concept to Outcome

This week’s “Talk at the House” features award-winning 9/11 photographer Jonathan Hyman recounting the route his iconic images took to becoming a key exhibit at Manhattan’s ground-zero Memorial Museum. His talk starts Aug. 12th
at 7pm, followed by a question-and-answer session.

Hyman’s 9/11 photos focus not on the event itself, but rather on the nation’s reaction to the catastrophe. He spent five years snapping images of barns, cars, high-rise facades and outdoor landscape -- even new tatoos on arms, legs and chests -- all decorated with American flags and other patriotic graphics. He recorded some pictures from atop ladders to get the perfect perspective, and others while hanging precariously outside windows. A Sullivan County resident, Hyman recently published “The Landscapes of 9/11: A Photographer’s Journey” to significant national acclaim.
