A panorama looking northeast across Ground Zero made two weeks after the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Meyerowitz assembled the image from multiple frames he had made on the ninth floor of the World Financial Center

Joel Meyerowitz was the only photographer with regular access to Ground Zero in the weeks and months after 9/11. As part of the November 2010 TimeFrames issue, TIME commissioned Meyerowitz to travel back to Ground Zero and revisit some of the locations in his seminal work, Aftermath: World Trade Center Archive.

We interviewed him after the shoot and asked him to compare his experience and the pictures he made in 2001-02 to the ones he made for TIME.
