The tragic events of 9/11 still haunt people to this day, so it is only natural that tourists and locals who take the time to visit ground zero as well as the construction site for the new One World Trade Center are overcome with emotion, which the photo series titled Looking On by Keith Goldstein captures. The photographer snaps candid shots of these unguarded expressions, showing how people from different walks of life are joined by such significant events.

Looking On by Keith Goldstein was created almost on a whim as he began to shoot photos during his lunch hour. Goldstein tells Fast Co. Design, "My intention was to capture a thought-provoking collection of expressions, emotions, and the diverse ethnic make-up of the visitors, to see how they reacted to what they were seeing--a place where people perished and a new place that was being rebuilt out of the ruins.”
