I remember when I was around 6 years old, my cousins came up to visit us from Virginia. They wanted to go see the Statue of Liberty. It was around my birthday so they asked what I wanted and I said a camera. They bought me one and I took it on our trip. I remember taking a picture of my cousin specifically telling her to pose because the twin towers were behind her. Where that photo is now, I don’t know, but I do hope it turns up again one of these days.
This book is a photographic representation of the towers from when they were being built, to when they were standing tall with views from the east, west, and more. Some truly great photography in this book as well as some detail on the towers themselves from an architectural standpoint. It is a great way to remember the towers and of course all of those that tragically lost their lives when the towers, New York and America were attacked.
I received a free ecopy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
A photographic tribute to the World Trade Center towers, this book captures the lost icons of the New York City skyline as they were. Rising dramatically above all other skyscrapers at the tip of Manhattan, the World Trade Center came to symbolize New York City. From any direction the towers were lodestars, Manhattan’s Mountains.
As New Yorkers and all Americans have sought to heal from the wounds of September 11, 2001, they have recalled how the World Trade Center looked form home or office windows, how it came into sight as they approached Manhattan by car, by plane or from the water.
Photographers Sonja Bullaty and Angelo Lomero and architecture critic Paul Goldberger together have created an unforgettable portrait of the Twin Towers. This photographic memoir enables New Yorkers and visitors alike to look back, see the towers once again, and remember.
