From the Author

Magnum Photos, founded in 1947 by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, George Rodger and David “Chim” Seymour, is a cooperative of nearly sixty photographers. For the past half century, Magnum photographers have worked for nearly every major publication in the world. 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. To this day, Magnum continues to produce the very best in documentary photography, as evident in New York September 11, by Magnum Photographers.

Format: Hardcover
For those of you not familiar with the name "Magnum", they are a photographers collective that mainly shoot Reportage (in its loosest sense) Photographs. The name Magnum always (in my opinion) has the quality tag attached to its work, as the photographers work usually has some personality and intimacy attached. This book is no exception.
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.

This book is fantastic. After such a keen interest in 9/11 and the World Trade Center, i don't usually pay £17 for a book, but this really was worth every penny.
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.

A truly amazing book by a group of Magnum photographers who happened to be in New York as events unfolded. A historic document by photographers as stylisticly diverse as Bruce Gilden and Steve McCurry. Each photographer provides an accompanying text to their photos which provides an insight into their private thoughts and reactions, adding an extra layer. Highly recommended to anyone interested in documentary photography at its best.
