Cross is about to demolish

The following photographs were all made on 9/11 and are described here in Nachtwey's own words: "In my mind it all went into slow motion. Everything was floating. I thought I had all the time in the world to make the picture, and only at the last moment realized I was about to be taken out."

The worst he could see that day

“Something unbelievable had just happened, and it was about to get much worse.”


“Conventional means of dealing with emergencies were completely overwhelmed. Even with their equipment destroyed the firefighters continued to work. It was much more than an exercise in futility. It was an act of bravery and nobility.”

Seems like a ship wreck

“It looked like the set of a science fiction film about the apocalypse.”
