This essay examines the Here is New York project, a photographic exhibition that opened in late September 2001, just two weeks after the Twin Towers collapsed (hence, it was the first public event to provide documentary evidence of the 9/11 disaster in New York City). In particular, the essay spotlights two main aspects of the exhibition. On one hand, it explains why, during setting-up, the curators decided not to distinguish between professional pictures and those taken by amateurs (all the photographers present that day thus became eyewitnesses with cameras.) On the other, it underlines the significant discontinuity proposed by Here is New York, which adopts a very different visual rhetoric compared to the representation of 9/11 in the mainstream media coverage, especially by US television and major newspapers.
