dc.description.abstract In response to the World Trade Center tragedy, and to the unprecedented flood of images that have resulted from it, a unique exhibition and sale of photographs was displayed in a store front in SOHO. HERE IS New York was not a conventional gallery show. It was tailored to the nature of the event and to the response it elicited. The exhibition was subtitled "A Democracy of Photographs" because anyone and everyone who took pictures related to the tragedy was invited to submit their images to the gallery, where they were digitally scanned, printed and displayed on the walls alongside the work of top photojournalists and other professional photographers. All of the prints were sold to the public for $25, regardless of their provenance. The net proceeds from the sale of these prints went to the Children's Aid Society WTC Relief Fund. After the gallery show ended, the photographs were exhibited on this website. Formerly hosted at hereisnewyork.org. en_US
