"Here, in brief, is life going on. Here is a generation of New Yorkers cutting still another template, one that's about resistance to doom and about getting on with it, in spite of everything. . . . They're too busy for terror. . . . Too busy living. Welcome to New York."—Pete Hamill, author of Forever: A Novel
Photojournalist Eddie Adams invited photography students to document 9/11/02 in the five boroughs to illustrate the resilience of New Yorkers. “Assignment: We Love New York!” brought 101 participants—many of whom were visiting New York for the first time – into the city, where they focused their cameras on the upbeat daily life of the Big Apple. Two stories unfold here: one of the young photographers learning from their mentors the craft of photojournalism, and the story of the men, women and children of New York and their love for the city on the first anniversary of 9/11.
Eddie Adams is a photojournalist whose career spans over forty years. He is the winner of the Pulitzer Prize and recipient of more than five hundred international and national awards.
