We’re recalling the 16th anniversary of 9/11 this week here by presenting the photographs collected by Berlin-based artists Stefka Ammon and Robert Ziegler for their 9/11 remembrance project devoted to tourist images of the World Trade Center. Here we have a perfectly-framed image of a young man facing the camera as a swath of ferry backwash forms where the Hudson River meets the Atlantic Ocean. Lower Manhattan is shrouded in haze and the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center are a spectre of their tragic destiny. “MY_WTC #31 | Paul 1990 | Twin Towers, center stage.”

“1990, on the ferry to Staten Island. After traveling up from Annapolis on a greyhound bus, arrived with a headache, so decided to get out of the humid city, to get some fresh air and a better view of the city from the ferry. I was glad I did because I’d never get another chance.”
