TIME magazine’s unprecedented triple-fold cover for the March 17, 2014 issue features a spectacular bird’s-eye view of One World Trade Center. Kira Pollack, director of photography and visual enterprise at TIME, will interview Jonathan D. Woods, TIME’s photo and interactive senior editor, about how he and Michael Franz created this image, a photographic collaboration that took many months from conception to execution. The 360-degree photograph was made from over 567 images taken over a five-hour period, with a camera mounted on a twelve-foot aluminum pole attached to the spire. Pollack and Woods will take the audience through this process with stills and video, and address the promise of photography today.

This conversation is part of the W. Eugene Smith Talks, a series of collaborations between the Fund and Aperture Foundation celebrating the legacy of W. Eugene Smith today. Smith was a classic photographic storyteller, and the Smith Fund works to support that tradition.
