Publisher Comments:

“I witnessed the fall of the burning towers and death of thousands of people just blocks from where I live. I had taken my camera with me that morning and in a crowd of people took photos while in deep shock, fearing for the lives of those trapped and the rescue workers rushing to save them. I have never felt so helpless in my life.”--Michael Feldschuh

During the three months that the September 11 Photo Project was on display at a donated gallery in New York City's SoHo neighborhood, more that forty thousand people visited the space to view the photos and read the words of the project's contributors. The photos in this book, selected from the submissions of more than five hundred photographers, young and old, amateur and professional, give a permanent voice to those who made the September 11 Photo Project what it is: an attempt to build new understanding from the ashes of what has been.

These photographs are presented in the following pages with the words of the photographers, as they appeared in the gallery.

The perspectives represented on the gallery walls were as diverse as the photos were haunting. Many visitors went away from the exhibit with a greater understanding of what had occurred and were able to begin the healing of the deep wounds of losing friends and neighbors, of witnessing unfathomable atrocity, of feeling that there was no way to help. Together in this book, these words and images lend insight into this calamitous event and our world as it changed in those terrifying moments on a sunny September morning.

The SoHo gallery is closed, but the project continues; the collection has embarked on a nation-wide tour.

The September 11 Photo Project will use its proceeds from the sale of this book to continue its mission, and to support the New York City Firefighters Burn Center Foundation.

Synopsis:

Introduces a program that collects and exhibits photographs inspired by the terrorist attack and its aftermath, and offers images of its gallery and a selection of photographs.

Synopsis:

The September 11 Photo Project was founded as an outlet through which New Yorkers could participate in the healing of their city by donating personal photos to be hung alongside those of their neighbors. Based in a donated SoHo gallery, the project has grown to include images from U.S. citizens living outside of New York and in the rest of the world. Visitors to the gallery from all over the United States have been touched by the many voices represented on the walls. This book is a collection of photographs from the September 11 Photo Project compiled in an effort to recreate the experience of viewing the gallery — and feeling the hope and resilience of its founders and contributors who sought to create in the face of destruction.

Over 250 moving — often shocking — photographs taken by both amateur and professional photographers embody the horror of the September 11 terrorist attacks and the indomitable spirit of Americans. Much like the AIDS Quilt, The September 11 Photo Project will be a perpetually traveling exhibit. All of the author's proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit the project and its charitable affiliates.
