A year after the September 11 attacks 7,000 photographs of New York go on show in Dublin.
The 'Here Is New York' collection of photographs began when a photographer hung one image on a shop window after the attacks on the city in September 2001. The exhibition goes on display at The Sausage Factory in Dublin. Pattie O'Reilly of the New York Gallery explains how the collection of photographs came about.
He put up in his empty store front one lone image of the Towers like tourist type of image and people started gathering around it after days...He said we need some photos we need some way for people to be able to handle what they just can't handle. And that is how it all started from that one image.
The images have all been donated by a variety of photographers. Proceeds from the sale of the prints are to be divided between The Children's Aid Society World Trade Centre Fund and The Irish Famine Commemoration Fund.
