About the Ground Zero Museum Workshop:
A visit to the Ground Zero Museum Workshop begins with a 15 minute film featuring a montage of photographs, as well as an interview with Gary Marlon Suson, whose photographs are at the center of the Ground Zero Museum Workshop. After the film, tour guides introduce some of the important photos and artifacts in the Workshop, and visitors can hold a cross or Star of David forged from World Trade Center remnants, as well as some of the rare pieces of window glass to have survived the collapse of the Twin Towers.
As the Official Photographer at Ground Zero for the Uniformed Firefighters Association, Suson was able to capture moving moments and document aspects of the Ground Zero Recovery that the public would have no other way of experiencing. Suson recorded audio commentary for most of the photos, revealing deeper stories behind the photos and artifacts. There are many interesting stories featured about those working at Ground Zero throughout the recovery, including the stories of many Firefighters searching for members of their own families lost on September 11th.
Ground Zero Museum Workshop is certainly an emotional and humbling experience. It is similar to visiting the Anne Frank Museum in Holland, where the reality of what happened is not sugar coated. There are no graphic or morbid images displayed here and the core of the collection focuses more on the recovery efforts as opposed to the tragedy of the morning of September 11.
The intention of the Ground Zero Museum Workshop is meant to be a beautiful and touching way to remember the fallen and those that struggled to recover them. The only memory that most people have of that day is the sight of two towers collapsing and aerial, video footage of Ground Zero. Ground Zero Museum Workshop takes you past the security gates of Ground Zero, months after that fateful day and shows you a perspective unknown other than to those that worked at the sacred, World Trade Center site.
