DescriptionSeptember 11, 2001 was a black day in U.S. history. Amid the chaos, sea captains and crews raced by boat to the tragic Manhattan scene. Nearly 500,000 people on Manhattan Island were rescued that day in what would later be called the largest sea evacuation in history. In this rarely told story of heroism, we come to understand that in our darkest hours, people shine brightly as a beacon of hope.

His work has appeared in numerous publications, including Time magazine, Rolling Stone, The New York Times, The Atlantic, and Boston Globe magazine. He was originally trained by Magnum Photos agency member David Hurn in documentary photography, later turning to illustration to satisfy his need for complete artistic autonomy.
