On September 11, 2001, New York City was shaken to its core when two jet airliners crashed into the twin towers of the World Trade Center. In the wake of the chaos, New York-based Irish photographer Nicola McClean responded in the only way she knew how; she picked up her camera and took to the streets to try and capture the confusion and panic that surrounded her.

In 2011, McClean brings her stunning collection of images to the public for the first time. Through harrowing visuals, chilling audio clips and a unique panoramic installation, Ground Zero 360° invites you to step into the past and feel what eight million New Yorkers were feeling in the days that followed the attacks. The spectator will be able to discover, through Nicola’s eyes, the startling aftermath of one of the most tragic events in American history – seeing what she saw, hearing the stories she heard and meeting the people she met, particularly the heroic men and women of the New York City Emergency Services.

The city of New York continues to evolve and change, but the memory of those extraordinary days and weeks will always remain with us. Ground Zero 360° allows the onlooker to experience the enduring events of September 11th and celebrate the tremendous courage and dignity of a nation under fire.

 

Ground Zero 360 premiered at the Holocaust Museum in Houston, Texas, on September 11th, 2014.

A large crowd attended the emotional opening, including representatives of Texas Governor Rick Perry and Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott.
Police Officer James Smith, who lost his wife Moira, and Jamie O’Rourke, daughter of hero firefighter Kevin O’Rourke, were present and spoke on behalf of the 9-11 families.
The exhibition will remain in Houston until January 11th, 2015.
