Opening Reception: Sunday, September 11 from 2-4pm


On view through October 16

The photographs in this exhibit follow Sislen’s 15-year photographic journey beginning before 9/11, and continuing today. The photographs made after September 11 show destruction, mourning and remembrance that took place at and near ground zero and throughout New York City. This exhibit explores an area transformed into new structures and memorials and importantly, reflects a new vibrancy and hope for New York City and beyond.

Sislen’s personal connection to the World Trade Center and neighboring financial district were the catalyst for a few casual photographs growing into a multi-year project. As we commemorate the 15th anniversary of 9/11, he hopes this exhibit will help us to Never Forget the morning of 9/11/01 that affected so many, and the sorrow, the hope and the transformation that followed.
