This photo exhibition is comprised of images taken by photojournalist Richard Press at the various facilities of the Chief Medical Examiner's Office and Fresh Kills landfill in the months since September. The photographs document the efforts of investigators and forensic experts to find and identify victims of the WTC disaster. They offer a rare and poignant view into the largest investigation in the history of forensic science while examining how a technological society copes with disaster. Richard Press studied physical and forensic Anthropology at Cornell University and photography at the City College of New York. He is a former forensic photographer for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for the City of New York.
