Stéphane Sednaoui SIGNED COPY: Search and Rescue at Ground Zero

It has been said that 9/11 is among the most photographically documented events in history. But, while photographs from the day of the attacks are multitudinous and ubiquitous, photos of the World Trade Center site in the immediate days after are exceedingly rare. We are indebted to Stéphane Sednaoui, who felt compelled – not as a photographer but as a human being – to rush down, that afternoon, to what would soon come to be known as Ground Zero, hoping to volunteer in the search and rescue efforts underway. Over three nights, Sednaoui worked tirelessly along with thousands of other volunteers digging through the wreckage, desperately hoping to find survivors. He had brought along a small Ricoh camera, and in those moments when the workers would pause to listen for sounds that might help them locate a person who might have been trapped beneath a mountain of debris, he would take pictures. A stunning archive documenting the terrible beauty of that unreal landscape. Sednaoui has received critical acclaim for directing landmark videos with U2, Madonna, Björk, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, among others. His fashion and portrait photography has graced the pages of Vogue Italia, Vanity Fair, the New York Times Magazine, and Interview.
