Product Description

Review

Photographer Francesc Torres got a close view of 9/11: in 2011 he was renting an apartment very near the towers. But that wasn't why he spent five months recording the contents of Hangar 17. "I was knocked out of my shoes when I stepped inside," he recalls. "It's a huge place - big enough to take an airliner, nose to tail - and filled with all kinds of objects: structural materials from the buildings, vehicles, subway cars, personal objects... Then there were the contents of the stores in the malls that were under the twin towers. There was no end to it. It was overwhelming and temporary. When I saw it, I had to photography it. --The Guardian Weekend, 20th August 2011

About the Author

Photographer Francesc Torres combines performance, photography, and video, creating works that question social order and the interactions between political and economic power. He is especially interested in the influence of memory on the present, which is his interest in the remains of 9/11. Torres' media projects have been included in solo exhibitions at the Whitney Museum in New York; the Capp Street Project in San Francisco; the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Gardens in Washington, D.C.; the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego; and in museums around the world, including Madrid, Mexico City, St. Petersburg, and Prague.

This book was bought as a gift for someone so I am perhaps not the best person to review it. That said it's very glossy and the person who asked for it was delighted. It arrived very quicky and in perfect condition (always a bit of a worry when ordering a hard back as a gift) thanks to the good packaging. I'd reccomend the seller and the boook to anyone who is into photography and fancies something a bit different for their coffee table. It shows a side of one of the biggest events of our life time that is rarely seen or considered.

I've seen a few photos online of the artifacts in Hanger 17, but almost all of this book is new to me. No matter what your view is on "9/11 conspiracies" or whatever, you need to see this book. I feel "awe and amazement" are not too strong to describe my feelings as I view these photos.

A very thought provoking read. Hard to believe it's been 10 years since that horrific event. Photographs give a hint on the destruction of that day.
