9/11 and MY_WTC

Monday, 11 September, 2017

It’s been 16 years to the day since Islamist terrorists used hijacked planes to declare war upon the West and murder some 3,000 innocent people in the process. Those who experienced what has become known as 9/11 will never forget that infamous day and it is our duty to remember it annually and perpetually.

The Berlin-based artists Stefka Ammon and Robert Ziegler have created a project in remembrance of 9/11 in the form of a website devoted to photos of the World Trade Center submitted by people who visited New York City between 1966 and 2001. For the remainder of the week, here, our posts will be devoted to those images. We begin with the photograph titled “MY_WTC #25 | Freidoun 1994,” which was taken from a Hudson River boat filled with tourists. The light creates a dramatic panorama and the spell-binding buildings are magnificent and heart-breakingingly vulnerable.
