These images are from a group of thirty-three ink on paper drawings and one work in colour made at the World Trade Centre site in the winter of 2001-2. They include Saint Paul's Chapel on Broadway which had become a centre for people working on the recovery and clearing operation. After some time on the perimeter of the site Lucinda was given access behind the scenes and the resulting drawings provide an insight into Ground Zero at a time when photography was hardly permitted. The original drawings were exhibited in London in 2002 and reproduced later at Saint Paul's Chapel.
'Because the physical form of New York was by then so familiar to me I wanted to portray something of what had happened to it. Allowed into these unseen parts of the site I felt an urgency to record extraordinary, passing scenes and the people dedicated to their gruelling task.'
