Six professional photographers from or with strong ties to South Jersey headed to New York City last week. Paul Dempsey, Paul Gillespie, Bill Horin, Holly Horner and Steve Jasiecki piled (literally) into Alex Anton’s Tahoe and hit the road.
How would they spend their time there? Would they attend the PhotoPlus Expo at the Javits Center? Would they roam the ‘Toys R’ Us’ for photographers also known as B&H Photo? Maybe they would for nostalgic reasons foolishly stop at a White Castle for dinner or, even more foolishly, attempt to break up a street fight. Or maybe, just maybe, they would hop on a subway train and head to Ground Zero, where, armed with one camera and one lens each, they would participate in Photo Challenge 2014.
Actually, they did all of the above.
The World Trade Center and 911 Memorial were the highlight of the trip. A very moving and, I have to say, unexpected experience. Enjoy the slideshow below and, as always, thanks for listening.
