ESCALATORS UP  1997
ESCALATORS UP 1997

ESCALATORS UP 1997 is an analog photo collage made out of 1-hour prints from color negatives. I had created it back then as a promotional piece for my portfolio. The images here are of the escalator bank from the World Trade Center PATH station, destroyed during the 9/11 attacks. The unwitting, prescient design of people heading heavenward has haunted me ever since the attacks, especially since it is possible that any one of these people, likely headed to work at WTC that day, might have perished in the attacks a few years later.
