Stephen Mallon, Flight 1549

I am bringing up the rear here as Stephen Mallon's Flight 1549 series has been blogged and blogged again, but it's almost a year since the event unfolded and there's an exhibition at Calumet in New York for the anniversary (reception January 15th). Steve was commissioned by the crane company to photograph the plane being salvaged, and posted a selection on his website. Fun and games ensued with Steve being hassled by the plane's insurance company and all the photo community yelling "free speech!". Ultimately, he was able to keep and publish much of this incredible and exclusive record. It's a chilling memory; Steve's work makes it haunting and beautiful.
