German photographer Christoph Klauke had this very old black chamber camera that looked like it was coming from the birth of photography. With its cape and accordion-like shape, this became my daily 'rendez-vous' for 28 days. Perched on top of a Union Square studio overlooking the Empire State Building, Christoph and I documented the emotional content of my psyche, affected by the shock of witnessing the fall of the Twin Towers. This month after 9/11 was a confusing mixture of sadness, loss, fear, depression in the city. There was not much to do, so sitting for this project was a total treat. Like a moon cycle, those portraits express variable human emotions.
