Panoramic photographs of Ground Zero
Sixty black and white, color, and panoramic photographs of the collapsed World Trade Center by Stephen Delroy. Context:
Both amateur and professional photographers alike were inspired to document the events of the September 11 attack as well as the rescue and recovery efforts. Stephen Delroy, the building manager at the Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House in Lower Manhattan, took pictures of the World Trade Center after the impact of the two airliners from his vantage point just blocks away. On the night of September 22, Delroy was allowed access to Ground Zero because of his work assisting the National Guard in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks. He took with him his Hasselblad X-Pan panoramic camera and 45mm and 90mm lenses. The panoramas are stunning night scenes of recovery and the state of Ground Zero recovery efforts and the workers at the site.
