Joel Meyerowitz: Ground Zero, Then and Now

Joel Meyerowitz sat down for an interview with TIME after his most recent shoot for our Commemorative 9/11 issue to reflect on a decade of documenting Ground Zero.

Joel Meyerowitz was the only photographer with regular access to Ground Zero in the weeks and months following 9/11. As part of our Commemorative 9/11 issue, TIME commissioned Meyerowitz to venture back to Ground Zero and document the rapid changes at the site since late 2010. Meyerowitz was able to reflect on and even re-photograph many of the locations in his seminal work, Aftermath: World Trade Center Archive.
