In November the sharp smell of the smoke was still in the air and it carried the pain of the wound. One morning, I decided to walk towards the place where it happened. I had my camera with me, almost as a protection. I felt the need to give a physical form to the fact; like looking around, within and outside, after a disease to make sure that things are still there. I wasn’t looking for images, but for encounters. I repeated the experience of those few kilometers from home to the crater for about a month, sometimes along the shortest path, sometimes in random walks. The crater was not visible and I didn’t want to look inside of it. I met life’s resistance to life. It was as if the texture of reality would strive to stay, to persist. My silence was filled with sounds and words.

Many citizens of New York and many relatives of the victims of the attacks reacted by refusing all forms of violent response. This work is dedicated to them.
