Anyone who had taken pictures relating to the tragedy was invited to submit their images to the gallery, where they were digitally scanned, printed and displayed on the walls alongside the work of top photojournalists and other professional photographers. The photographs were initially displayed in a SoHo storefront and have since been installed, in varying forms, in museums and public spaces in New York City and locations around the world.
