Like many people in the wake of the September 11 tragedy, Michael Feldschuh felt helpless and frustrated and wanted to do something. Immensely moved by the impromptu shrines and fragile remembrances all over the city, Feldschuh, an amateur photographer and Wall Street professional, thought of something to do. He quickly initiated the September 11 Photo Project. Within weeks, his idea to create a space for the community to collaboratively, in his words, "bear witness" to the horrific events, was open to the public. A huge donated space in SoHo, mere blocks from the World Trade Center site, served as a gallery. Over the next few months, more than 40,000 people visited the gallery to look, read, participate, and mourn. Thousands of people contributed photographs, text, and collages. This book is a collection of images from this important social project. Its proceeds will be used to support a traveling exhibition of the project and the New York City Firefighters Burn Center Foundation. Of course the images are heart-wrenching: handwritten notes remembering missing loved ones, messages written in dust at the site, clouds of smoke, frightened faces. The pictures--some taken with disposable cameras, with accompanying text written on paper scraps--are immensely personal, yet the images capture the devastated mood and feelings of a nation. --J.P. Cohen

Sure, maybe the photos are a bit grainy, or fuzzy, or poorly exposed when compared to the images made on 9/11 by those who do it for a living. They aren't always sanitized, pretty pictures...but that's precisely where their power lies. Unlike some of the other photography books made about these events, this one leaves you with a real sense of what it was like to be a New Yorker on that day, watching this happen to your city and your world.
One of the reasons is because it is composed of thoughts and pictures of "ordinary" people - not professional writers and photographers. Sure, maybe its chaotic but that day wasn't exactly organized either and maybe this book reflects that.
It's really too much to take in all at once. Somewhere in there will be a picture or words that really "get" to you. So you put the book down for a while and then go back to it. Keep it where you can get at it easily and look at it over and over. We need to remember.
To me, this is the best book I've seen on 9/11. I'm sure there will be others that I will get but I don't think they'll be any better. Plus the proceeds from the book are being used to continue their project and to support the firefighters burn center.
