Joel Meyerowitz Revisits Ground Zero

TIME commissioned legendary photographer Joel Meyerowitz to return to Ground Zero in the fall of 2010 in order to explore the changes to the site and re-examine some of the historic scenes he had photographed in the wake of 9/11.

Joel Meyerowitz was the only photographer with regular access to Ground Zero in the weeks and months after 9/11. As part of the November 2010 TimeFrames issue, TIME commissioned Meyerowitz to travel back to Ground Zero and revisit some of the locations in his seminal work, Aftermath: World Trade Center Archive.

We interviewed him after the shoot and asked him to compare his experience and the pictures he made in 2001-02 to the ones he made for TIME.
