Twin Towers Remembered: The Photography of Camilo Jose Vergara
UNITED STATES
NEW YORK  •  New York Historical Society  •  Ongoing
 
An internationally acclaimed documentary photographer, Camilo Jose Vergara photographed the World Trade Center over a period of 31 years beginning in 1970, when the complex was still under construction. A long-time New Yorker, over the years he photographed the towers from countless perspectives, at every time of day, during all four seasons. Vergara was present on September 11 and continued to photograph the twin towers and New York during and after the tragedy. The exhibition includes photos from far-off neighborhoods in New Jersey and the outer boroughs, from ferry boats on New York Harbor, from “below” on the plaza, and from within the Twin Towers themselves. Vergara calls his exhibition "my personal reaction to the tragedy" of September 11, 2001.
