Flourish and Thrive Ep 6: Capturing History with Gary Marlon Suson

In this episode of the Flourish and Thrive radio show, Kate Hartley interviews Gary Marlon Suson, Official Photographer of Ground Zero and Founder of the Ground Zero Museum Workshop.

Gary, whose photographic studio was just a few blocks from the Twin Towers, started photographing the events of 9/11 shortly after the first tower was hit and continued for the next 9 months as the World Trade centre site was gradually cleared.

Plus, in the episode:

  • The fact that many of the rescue workers who were working at Ground Zero have since died due to chemical exposure and the toxic dust they inhaled.  In addition to this over 35% of all Ground Zero rescue workers have since committed suicide.
  • How his trip to the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, inspired him to create the Ground Zero Museum Workshop.
  • How The Ground Zero Museum Workshop is a protective and supportive way of educating our children about what happened on 9/11.
  • We talk about the fake news which was directed towards Gary and his Ground Zero Museum Workshop shortly after 9/11 and how it negatively affected him.
  • We discuss One World Observatory which stands on the site of the Twin Towers and Gary’s photographs of the new building.
