“9/11 and the American Landscape: Photographs by Jonathan Hyman,” will feature a selection of 63 photographs of personal tributes and memorials created across the country in response to the attacks of 9/11. Since September 11th, 2001, Jonathan Hyman has traveled the United States photographing the wide spectrum of American expression post-9/11 and has taken over 15,000 pictures of the personal tributes and memorials created in response to the attacks. From painted barnyards and firehouses to elaborate tattoos and neighborhood murals, the collection depicts a nation publicly coming to grips with a horrifying and shocking attack while at the same time trying to understand its new sense of vulnerability. The photographs present a unique chronicle of post-9/11 society as seen through the American vernacular. The exhibit will also offer tremendous views of the Trade Center site from the 45th floor of 7 World Trade Center.
