Michal Hardoof-Raz by Fred Ritchin

Sep 07, 2011

Fred Ritchin, director of PixelPress and author of After Photography

"A few days after the attacks of Sept. 11, at pixelpress.org we encouraged people from around the world to send in imagery or text responding to the events. One of the most affecting to me was by a photographer in Boston, Michal Hardoof-Raz, who simply sent in nine images of dust. To me that was the contribution that best expressed the desolation that we were all feeling—nothing was left, so much was invisible, the pain would be permanent."
