WORLD TRADE CENTER
I want to share some of the images of the World TradeCenter and pay homage to the impact on the lives that were lost on that tragic September morning as well as their families.
The images were made from 1976 to 2002. Looking at the towers early on I thought that their domination of the cityscape was unsightly. Eventually, I started to warm up to these very large structures. Windows on the world be-came a family destination.
My wife Paula and I were living
on our yacht Carrillon berthed in a slip directly across the river from the twin Towers. Paula had returned to Brooklyn the night before. The phone rang as I was preparing breakfast. My boat neighbor asked if I was aware of what was happening,Since I am unable to see the river from the galley,I ran to the stern facing the towers. Initially thought that a small plane blundered and crashed into the north tower. Within minutes, I saw a large black obJect approaching the other tower. Before I could process what I was seeing, this missile entered the south tower and a huge fireball exploded out the other side.
My brain went on automatic mode. I realized that i was crying. I had two cameras loaded wih film. I started shootingand did not stop until all the film was exposed. The rest of the day were filled with terrible moments
