âfrom the introduction by David Halberstam
By now, the story of September 11 has been burned into our collective memory, but few have seen New York from the perspective of Magnum photographers. Eleven members of the legendary photo agency immediately dispersed from their monthly meeting in New York as the events unfolded to document the incomprehensible. Their photographs, by turns haunting, surreal, and breathtaking, are collected together in New York September 11, by Magnum Photographers, compellingly presented in this high-quality edition from powerHouse Books. From their various vantage points we are transported to Ground Zero to witness the destruction of the World Trade Center, the buildingsâ implosion which sent thousands fleeing through the streets from debris, only to return to the scene in quiet observation and respect for the rescue workers whose jobs had only begunâand of the mourners who had been gathering struck with grief.
About: Offers a photographic chronicle of the destruction of the World Trade Center in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and includes classic photographs of the Twin Towers taken over the twenty-five years of their existence.
