Lest We Forget………

On the anniversary of the tragedy that occurred on 9/11, we’d like to share some particular sites of photographs of that days events.

James Nachtwey for Time
Bill Biggarts Final Exposures from the site ” Digital Jounalist”
911 Research
9-11 images

And a very interesting comparison of photographs at locations then and now from National Geographic.

I didn’t realize how strong my reaction would be to seeing these images again.There was an uncontrollable sadness and shock just in preparing the links for this article. Perhaps since we were inundated with those scenes for so long after the event, we do a subconscious block. Maybe the media saturation serves a dual purpose: on the one hand you have been delivered the news in every conceivable manner, on the other your emotional capacity is tested to a point where your brain gets inured to the information.
Well, these images will be fresh again. Be forewarned as you click through the links.

The relatively recent event should be commemorated with a moment to remember the people that lost their lives and the enormous impact on all of our lives, globally.

In honor of that day, we are proud to offer our weekly giveaway this week of the Joel Meyerwitz book:Aftermath: World Trade Center Archive
