This artwork is on view in the Walker exhibition The Living Years: Art after 1989. The text below is the artwork's label written for that exhibition.

In 2001, JoAnn Verburg took this photograph on the Sunday after the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States. Her husband, poet Jim Moore, holds the newspaper showing an image of the World Trade Center’s twin towers. “It wasn’t that I wanted to capitalize on a great headline; [I used it] because I was devastated,” says the artist. “My way of working my way out of deep emotional traumas is looking out through the [camera’s] ground glass at the world.”
