When you look at the modern portfolio of Photographer Michel Leroy, you wouldn't at all believe that 9/11 was a time that touched him personally. But not only was photography bred into Michel since high school, but so was journalism.
On September 11th 2001, the World Trade Center fell here in NYC as the world and many New Yorkers looked on in horror. For this year's remembrance, we wanted to interview a number of photographers who were around and on the scene during that time. Many of them have never looked back at their archives and with Michel, the experience was one that he felt really changed him. But as many photojournalists will tell you, the camera can be a shield of some sort from your own emotions. . thephoblographer.com
