Preserving the Faces of 9/11

I'm a fan of Joe McNally's work. One of his most significant projects was photographing the heroes of 9/11 with the world's largest Polaroid camera. The camera is a truck trailer and captures life sized images. He has a book compiling the photographs, and has had a couple of shows displaying them. However, he has been having to store and care for them himself. He has a post on his site about that and how New York camera retailer Adorama has agreed to help him with those expenses. It is a moving and inspiring post that anyone with an interest in photography would like to read. These photographs will be a piece of our history. They should be preserved and displayed.

His post is on his blog. Here is a link to it.
