Beautifully documented, stark and respectful compilation of images probably the most ingrained, collectively There was also a small but powerful exhibition of select photographs from this book at the Smithsonian Institution s Arts Industries building in 2002 I was working next door at the Freer Sackler Gallery at the time, and used to visit it every day when I went for coffee Like the book, the exhibition was stark and understated few visitors even seemed to notice it Nor did they seem to notice the singed American flag, unceremoniously hanging within reach on the far wall It was actually recovered from the World Trade Center site So many people passed beneath it, rarely bothering to look up This book reminds me as much of that experience as it does of 9 11 itself And while it s certainly not a pleasant memory, The photographs say everything The book and the pictures move you to immediately and it felt like September 11 was just yesterday Just seeing the pictures can get me into teary eyes.
Got this book at a box sale It sat on a shelf and collected dust Why did I keep it I have no idea I decided that I didn t need it clutteringup my life any and I decided that I m going to give it to my library.
Someone might appreciate it better I was only 9, when it happened I had no idea and I had no connection I have never been to New York, and I have a different nationality, but I did feel just as vunerable The pictures are powerful and wrenching, it would probably mean so muchto someone who was actually there, maybe someone who lost a loved one.
September 11, a day forever changed.
The pictures really do an awesome job of telling the awful story of what happened that day My students weren t even born on this terrible day, and I believe they need books that capture the pain and memories in an appropriate way I m taking this to school tomorrow to share with them.
I had never seen many of these photos before Necessary documentation of an extraordinary day.
Photographies tend to express lots of things about real deep human emotions i.
e you can see them clearly in their facial expressions , it was an amusement to read this documentary book to some extent It contained mainly photos, witnesses , and some versions of how people lived these moments.
I was 04 when it happened , I was in my grandma s house , and I still do remember this day, I have clear visions and images of The tours , the planes, thr collapse, maybe it was the first time in my life I realised America existed XD D I have clear rootY souvenirs of that day 3
