September 11 photography

Ron documented the horror and destruction up close. Equipped with a bicycle and a camera he got out of his office in the Soho and rode south towards what was once the Twin Towers.

In 2001, galvanized by the events of September 11th, Ron rushed to the scene of the disaster and shot over 1200 photographs, capturing the simple heroics of people caught up in the sweep of history. Now housed in the permanent collection of the 9/11 Memorial Museum, this body of work stands as an intimate, indelible, deeply human portrait of history being made, person by person.
