The photographers are particularly well known for their photo essays and seminal photography books, including Vietnam Inc. by Philip Jones Griffiths in the sixties and Gypsies by Josef Koudelka in the seventies.

We can appreciate that (obviously) this was no pre-planned Photo assigment/project, and as a result here we have a well produced, personal and above all honest portrayal of what happened in that dreadful period. All of the photographers have different personal accounts (which they briefly share) and approach the subject with their own (uncontrived) style.
The Bruce Gilden pictures contained express a style that those familiar with his work will recognise, yet capture the look of shock and absolute bewilderment of the people involved. As i said above, this book captures the personal aspect of what happened in a non sensationlist, but very real manner. And this is an important aspect to remember, as i'm quite many of us (around the world) felt it was a very personal act of terror.
If you are looking for a book that documents this event in a sensationalist, all angles, gory/glory detail, this isnt the publication for you. If however you want something that is emotionally compelling and well produced - i cant recommend this enough.
I visited the World Trade Center back in 1997 and the photos shock me. Each set of photos contains a story of how the photos were taken by the photographers. The risks and challenges they faced to get some shots. It is really interesting.
I was slightly let down by the fact that not many photos were taken of the collapse of the plane impacts, the moments when the world really did change for ever. The book contains good, yet shocking, photos of the aftermath. You really understand the extent of the damage done and how far the debris spread following the collapse of the World Trade Center.
There are also about 50+ full colour photos taking up two whole pages, which look breath taking. Sometimes you even forget that these are photos. They make you feel like you were there. The most stunning photos are of firefighters bowing their heads, with the World Trade Center Plaza Wall wreckage in the foreground.
A very interesting book, worth the full £17.

Not as interesting as expected. Not many photos of the actual day and not very descriptive.Published 4 months ago by Monica Geller
