Spectral Evidence [10 black and white photographs from Polaroid negatives] I had no television. I found out because my brother called and told me about the first tower. Even after I saw it, I did not understand. Years later, I learned that trauma, like a photograph, cannot be experienced until it happens. One sitter said years later of his picture, "It is contemplative but there is no real productive contemplation." Another said, "My body language suggests I was removing myself from something, but my face makes it look like I'm involved, or resigned." We knew the event was something but what was it? In the following years, as I observed how others remembered it, I had the sense that I had missed something from the beginning. In taking these pictures, I wanted to go back to the seminal moment so maybe I could understand what we all had seen.
