Brooklyn, NY, September 2011.
To reflect on life in the aftermath of September 11, 2001, Kathy Shorr decided to take one photograph per day from September 11, 2010 to September 11, 2011. For Shorr, each image captured something about the ethos of America—who we are today—ten years later. The writer Barbara Cassidy, Kathy's sister, wrote a journal entry each day; these are exhibited alongside the photographs. The exhibition merges the publicly visible world of everyday events with the personal perspectives of the artist and writer, who worked independently. The viewer connects their paired works by building bridges that forge connections—or seeing none—in a way similar to how we must make sense of our world, and link our present to our memory.
