Book cover for "Requiem: Images of Ground Zero"

Join us in the 9/11 Memorial Museum Store between 12 and 5 p.m. on Saturday, March 7, for a book signing of Requiem: Images of Ground Zero and a meet-and-greet event with photographer and author Gary Marlon Suson.

Suson, an FDNY honorary battalion chief, served seven months as the official photographer at Ground Zero for the FDNY. Originally from the Chicago area, Suson began shooting photography at age 11 on his suburban Barrington Hills farm and moved to New York after winning the National Kodak Medallion as a high schooler to become a fashion and celebrity photographer, shooting portraits for B.B. King, Shaquille O’Neal, artist LeRoy Neiman, and more.

In November 2001, Suson was granted full access to Ground Zero by the FDNY to document the recovery period for the families of those lost on September 11. The resulting book Requiem: Images of Ground Zero contains 280 images and chronicles Suson’s singular photographic journey into the heart of Ground Zero.
