THE ATTACKS ON New York’s World Trade Centre on September 11, 2001 are etched into the memory of many people – but images from that day have lost none of their power to shock.

Dublin-based photographer Nicola McClean was in New York as the twin towers fell, and documented the scenes in the city that day and in the days following. Her previously unseen pictures feature in a new exhibition, Ground Zero 360°, which opened last week at Collins Barracks in Dublin. The exhibition also features artifacts and emergency calls from the attacks, which will see their ten-year anniversary in two weeks’ time.

The exhibition put together by McLean and her husband, former NYPD officer Paul McCormack, will be in Ireland until October 1 when it will make its US premiere at Chicago’s Field Museum.
