“I wanted to let the viewer to make decisions, to let the faces be on themselves and… to put them on the same level, to make a firefighter as large as the President.”
Marco Grob, Photographer, in TIME Magazine
A decade after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, TIME magazine launched an online retrospective. Beyond 9/11 focuses on 44 people whose lives were changed by the attacks, from Cantor Fitzgerald CEO Howard Lutnick, who lost 658 colleagues in the World Trade Center’s North Tower including his brother Gary, to documentarian Jules Naudet, who captured the crash of hijacked Flight 11 while on a shoot with Tribeca firehouse Engine 7/Ladder 1. Portrait photography supports video interviews; Marco Grob’s black and white images of each interviewee form a grid of faces that website visitors can explore.
A companion website to the HBO documentary Beyond 9/11: Portraits of Resilience, the project also appeared as a book, a commemorative issue of TIME magazine, and an exhibition of Grob’s photographs.
