The Lens: Viewing the 9/11 Memorial

Staff photographer Amy Dreher snaps a lot of pictures at the World Trade Center site, documenting the construction progress of the 9/11 Memorial. Amy also trains her lens on the smaller pieces that may be overlooked with a project of this magnitude. Through “The Lens: Viewing the 9/11 Memorial,” readers of The MEMO blog can share some of the unique vantage points captured by Amy.

Green in spring, golden brown for fall: Photographer Amy Dreher snaps a picture of a few of the trees that have been planted at the World Trade Center site since late August. All told, the plaza of the 9/11 Memorial will feature more than 400 of these trees, creating a vibrant green space and a pictuersque vision of fall.
