Jacobs documents New York in the immediate aftermath of September 11, 2001, from the emergency workers and crowds around Ground Zero to the spontaneous memorials in Union Square. He also records the process of gaining access to his own apartment, just blocks north of the Trade Center site, from which smoke was still rising. Jacobs' camera returns repeatedly to the empty sky, gazing as if in disbelief at the absence and void where the buildings had been.
