Since construction began on the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, there’s been one man who’s seen every angle, view and development.
Joe Woolhead, the photographer capturing the World Trade Center site and memorial and museum’s construction, is working together with Silverstein Properties to document the progress.
Born and raised in Dublin, Woolhead now works and lives in New York City with his wife and son. He became a professional photographer on Sept. 11 after capturing the events of that day and the subsequent days. His shots were published all over the world. The event led to many more opportunities for Woolhead, including work with the premier photography agency, Sipa Press.
In May 2004, Woolhead began to work with Silverstein Properties. Now, he works at the World Trade Center site photographing the ongoing construction. Due to his work at the site, Woolhead has invested more of his time in architectural photography.
Woolhead’s photos have been featured in The New York Times, Time, Town & Country, Esquire, Gotham, New York Post, Daily News, and Wall Street Journal, along with many other national and international publications.
