We’re honouring the 16th anniversary of 9/11 this week here by highlighting some of the photographs collected by the Berlin-based artists Stefka Ammon and Robert Ziegler for their 9/11 remembrance project devoted to tourist images of the World Trade Center. This is “MY_WTC #23 | Rami 1998 | Falling in love on a roof.” Nicolas Liucci-Goutnikov, a curator at Centre Pompidou in Paris, commented on the photo thus: “an ‘artistic’ nude in the foreground restores to the towers their phallic symbolism.”

“The image was captured in July 1998, my first days in New York City & first romantic moments with the women which became my girlfriend later that time. Each time I look at this picture, it brings out autumn like feelings. Together with the iconic twin towers in the background, it’s a real child like memory.”
