About this title

Synopsis:

"The date, September 11, 2001, now has a certain permanence, graven on ourcollective memory, like a very few others December 7, 1941, and November 22, 1963, dates which seem to separate yesterday from today, and then from now. They become the rarest of moments; ordinary people will forever be able to tell you where they were and what they were doing when they first heard the news, as if the terrible deed had happened to them, which in some ways it did."
—from 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 buildings’ 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 begun—and of the mourners who had been gathering struck with grief.

Review:

"... Most of us couldn't compose ourselves, much less a photo at the site, so fortunately photographers whose job it is to witness and record history were quickly on the scene..." -- The Wall Street Journal

"... the overwhelming vision that you take away from all these photos is of a world transformed." -- The Boston Globe

"...a collection so penetratingly real, it re-aninmates the surreal feelings of many New Yorkers that day..." -- New York Daily News

"..Of all these books, this is the only one in which I wanted to live. It takes you back to the very moment, the day, when time stopped." -- Vogue

"In the talented hands of these professional shutterbugs, the emotional tug of the photos in this 144-page book is enormous..." -- Publishers Weekly, PW Daily, Book of the Day (November 16, 2001)

"No disaster, in war or peace, has been more photographed, from more angles, than the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center...." -- USA Today

"Something that happened less than three months ago is already remembered as history, history in an instant. -- David Halberstam, on CNN News Night

"The photographs are brilliant. They're really memorable.... -- David Halberstam on Larry King Weekend

... The book is masterful, but also detached. It’s a portfolio with its eyes on civic spirit, history, and the future.... New York September 11. " -- Entertainment Weekly
