On September 11, 2001, the U.S. was shaken at its core when 2 jet airliners crashed into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center. In the wake of the attack, New York based Irish photographer Nicola McClean responded in the only way she knew how; she picked up her camera and took to the streets to try and capture the sights and emotions that surrounded her.
McClean has created an exhibition called Ground Zero 360, to honor the victims and their families, who represent the diversity that is America and to never forget the sacrifice of so many on that terrible day. The exhibit includes photos, sculptures made from the steel structure of the Twin Towers, artifacts belonging to the first responders, and light boxes of encouraging notes from that day.
Please join us to hear Paul McCormack, Youngest Captain in NYPD history & Nicola McClean, the photographer of the exhibit.
