Since 1970, when the World Trade Center towers were still under construction, Camilo Jos Vergara photographed them from every possible angle. In this poignant photographic memoir their unmistakable outline rises above neighboring spires and bridges, anchoring the skyline over a wildlife preserve in Queens, a junkyard in Hoboken, an elevated train in the South Bronx , reminding us of how strong a presence they were, no matter where one stood. After the September 11th attack Vergara returned to many of the original photographic sites to record the effects of the towers absence on New York s skyline. What emerges is not only a tribute to a building, but a moving and personal documentation of a city and an entire region a portrait of both growth and loss. All profits from the sale of this book will be donated to the American Red Cross.
