Sometimes it takes a long time to fully absorb a tragedy, and that’s certainly the case for me and the September 11,2001 attacks on the World Trade Center.

Dopo l'11 settembre 2001, Meyerowitz decide di documentare l'opera di salvataggio e sgombero del luogo del crollo delle torri a futura memoria.
A fatica ottiene permessi dal municipio e da un museo e inizia la sua opera nel grande cratere divenuto un cantiere in cui lavoratori e forze dell'ordine dapprima lo guardano con sospetto armeggiare con la sua grande macchina fotografica col treppiede, poi lo accolgono nella loro comunità.
Fotografie tragiche e storie strazianti, notevoli o anche solo curi

Meyerowitz' photojournalistic collection of the cleanup process after 9/11 is sobering, humanizing and powerful. It is important work.

I saw this photographer/author speak on C-SPAN. His stories of taking photos after 9/11 moved me enough to buy the book.
