I am looking at the suspension of time when
something goes
wrong, adrenalin starts and time seems to stand
still. Every
action and inaction means so much, and carries so
much weight.
The images I am submitting represent 41 minutes of
faceless men and woman, firefighters, who woke
up on May 23rd
2005 to be confronted with a tragic situation. They
did this the
day before and they continue to do it today. There
is a certain
type of heroism these anonymous subjects
