In November 2001, the Oscar-nominated filmmaker Wim Wenders visited Ground Zero to capture the devastation caused by the 9/11 terror attacks and the huge recovery operation being undertaken.

Wim Wenders: Photographing Ground Zero presents large scale photographs taken less than two months after the attacks, as the gravity of these events left a new world in their wake.

Reflecting on what he witnessed in New York, Wenders has said: “My panoramic camera captured this amazing message: ‘Something terrible, altogether infernal, has happened here. But please, let this not become a ground for more hate, let the lives that were taken here not become the reason for more bloodshed. Let this place be forever a symbol of peace and healing’.”

Partly funded with the generosity of the Small Gifts Program from the US Embassy.
