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.

Sun shines through steel: A rising sun is framed in the erected steel of the 9/11 Memorial Museum's pavilion. Visitors will enter the pavilion and descend 70 feet below to the main exhibition space of the museum once it's open in 2012.
