These images convey the towers before, during, and after 9/11-as I knew and saw them in my daily life, and then during the tragedy. The book, which combines writing and photographs, opens with my poem of response to the attack. The images span from 1980 to 2010, beginning with a black and white photograph taken from the cables of the Brooklyn Bridge, and ending with a color photograph of The New Yorker, the war ship built with the Towers steel beams. The photographs were displayed in an exhibition I had in Pietrasanta, Italy in 2002. Many viewers who came to the show said they wanted to have a book of the photos. And so I created The Twin Towers to share my perspective with the world.
