Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0977297187, Paperback)2001 was technically the first year of the Twenty-first century. In the ten years since, the cataclysmic events of September 11 that year have already shaped the trajectory of an entirely new era. Through nearly three Presidential terms and two long wars, the ambitious plans to redevelop Ground Zero and construct a memorial to the victims are at last advancing. Architect Michael Arad's ambitious and unorthodox design for a permanent memorial (he boldly and wisely violated almost all the design criteria specified in the 2002 competition) has taken numerous twists and turns along its tortuous way to fruition, but the end result will likely be an unexpectedly striking and moving addition to the Lower Manhattan landscape. In the meantime, in the absence of a physical memorial, a different kind of memorial has been taking shape, regularly and steadily over the past ten years. Each of the nine 9/11 anniversaries brings together officials and people from all over the world to remember the victims of the attacks and defy international terrorism. The ritual has become a living memorial, whose immediacy and potency may prove greater than any monument. Marie Triller has taken on the task of witness by documenting every September 11 since 2002. Her complex and passionate images reveal the anguish of victims relatives, the dignity of emergency responders, the spirit of the nation, the empathy of hundreds of thousands of visitors from across America and all corners of the globe, and the tenacity of more than a few conspiracy theorists. This collection of images projects a searing account of a seminal aspect of post-9/11 history. Foreword by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. Afterword by Eleanor Heartney.
