Beyond 9/11 photographed by Marco Grob wins Emmy

Marco Grob (born in Olten Switzerland, 10′ from where I grew up) has won an Emmy together with TIME for the stunning portraits of “Beyond 9/11 Portraits of Resilience” in the category “New Approaches to News and Documentary Programming”

The The 9/11: Portraits of Resilience project also appeared as a special issue, a film documentary, a book and a photo exhibition. But the website is “perhaps the purest expression of what we attempted to accomplish,” said TIME Managing Editor Rick Stengel. “It’s very gratifying that it was recognized and I want to first of all pay tribute to the brave men and women who suffered through the terrible events of 9/11 and then shared their stories with us and the world.”
