Brazilian Photographers Commemorate 9/11 at Group Exhibition

1500 Gallery hosted an exhibition: PHOTOS_WTC: a group show commemorating 9/11 to coincide with the 10th anniversary of 9/11 which will run until Setp. 17th.  Curated by Fernando Costa Netto, Netto received 60 photos of Brazilian photographers who had shot the twin towers as early as the 80’s and as late as 2009. The latter he chose photographer, Lufe Gomes who had never been to New York and was struck by a cylinder cloud that hovered above the skyscrapers in downtown New York. He later discovered that this was the exact area the twin towers resided. Netto told us he is a journalist and wanted to document photographs of the towers that conveyed a feeling of the twin towers and the area surrounding it. Take a look at some of the standout photography from the exhibition below.
