The Lens: Capturing Life and Events at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum is a photography series devoted to documenting moments big and small that unfold at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum.

The View: A flower is left as a tribute in the South Pool of the 9/11 Memorial. Every night, tributes are collected by the 9/11 Memorial Museum staff. Some of the tributes become part of the 9/11 Memorial Museum’s permanent collection.
