Pro Photographers Commemorate 10th Anniversary of 9/11 with Project 9/11 - PPA Today

Pro Photographers Commemorate 10th Anniversary of 9/11 with Project 9/11

On the 10th anniversary of 9/11, professional photographer members of the Professional Photographers' Society of New York State Inc. (PPSNYS) will work together to capture New York's resilience and unity. Called "Project 9/11," the PPSNYS initiative will involve members of the association taking photos throughout New York State on Sunday, September 11, 2011.

During this 24-hour period, the association will capture the spirit of New York's resilience and unity through the eyes and lenses of its over 400 professional photographers. Participants will be photographing people and events from Montauk to Buffalo, Jamestown to Plattsburgh.

The ultimate goal of Project 9/11 is to produce a piece of living history, demonstrating the power of visual media to capture and document the emotions, people and events in this brief moment in time. And PPSNYS is harnessing the talents, minds and hearts of some of the finest people in the photographic profession to make it possible.

Participants will submit their photos to the Project 9/11 Committee, who will evaluate them. The photographer with the winning photo will be honored at the 2012 Photo North East Convention and Trade Show, taking place March 24 - 27 in Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey.

For more information about Project 9/11, please contact PPSNYS Headquarters at 518-434-9500 or
