9/11 Tribute: Capturing a Privileged Moment by Henry Leutwyler

For over 40 years, Henry Leutwyler has been capturing the essence of people and objects. In this episode of Saint Louis In Tune, he discusses the romantic process of photography and how a still life is a portrait of an object. His portraits of 9/11 recovered objects in the September 2021 issue of National Geographic vibrate with honor and tribute. The photographs "Sacred Dust" can be seen at the Foley Gallery in New York City September 10-26.
