Abstract


  • To those for whom this talk and the photographs that accompany it may cause distress, I apologise,

    and hope that what I have to say will be taken in the spirit intended - that is, as a tribute to those who

    worked to find ways to alleviate distress, heal wounds, offer comfort and repair damage. This talk offers

    me (and I hope you as an audience) an opportunity to think through the meaning of 'connection', and the

    meaning of photographs, their relationship to collective memory and community, and their capacity to

    allow survivors and those who witness tragedy intimately or from a distance to better understand the

    trauma of a disaster like 3.11 and to begin a process of recovery.
