    Portraits from Ground Zero

    On 9/11, photo-journalist & filmmaker, Andrea Booher, was designated by Mayor Guliani as one of the only two photographers allowed unlimited, 24 hour access. She was assigned to the Urban Search & Rescue teams, whose only mission was to find survivors. At the World Trade Center, Andrea kept a small green diary where she wrote the name and contact information of every responder that she met or photographed. Together, they crawled into voids, up stories of debris and down crevasses hundreds of feet deep. She shot over 9,000 images and collected over 40 hours of raw, unedited footage.
