"Each sequence of events, from rescue to memorial, recovery to beams of light and the removal of the final beam...completing this series of photographs throughout the year was my way to comprehend these traumatic events and to memorialize the victims, heroes and citizens," writes photographer Danny C. Sze.

This exhibition features 92 photographs covering "Ground Zero" from the day after the terrorist attack on September 11th, 2001 to the last day of the memorial service on September 11th, 2002.
