Here is New York

A Democracy of Photographs

“When my niece sent me this book, I finally comprehended what she,
and
everyone else in New York City, went through around 9/11. It was the
greatest gift she could have given me. Much more than anything on
television or in the newspapers, it helped me understand.”

Sean Elwood, Los Angeles, CA

“The dreadful attacks were recorded in the most democratic of ways
– by
thousands of photographers, amateur and professional, whose work has
been
gathered in this extraordinary new book.”

The Sunday Telegraph Magazine, London

Here is New York was founded in response to the events of September 11,
and to the flood of images that resulted from it. The idea was simple:
to
present images of the event by as many different people and from as many
different perspectives as possible. In the days following September 11,
the organisers asked for pictures and were inundated with slides,
negatives, prints, and digital files from photographers of every
description, not only top photojournalists and other professionals, but
rescue workers, firemen, cops, school children, and amateurs of every
kind. In order to underline that it was the images themselves that
mattered, rather than their makers, the photographs were all digitally
scanned, printed out in exactly the same format, and hung from wires
without attribution nor frames in a Prince St store front. The book Here
is New York (for visual of the book visit: www.scalo.com) is the
most comprehensive and authentic document of what occurred. It bears
witness to what seemed unimaginable, and it memorializes the people who
perished and the rescue workers who served so courageously. Most of
all,
the book is a testimony of people speaking directly to each other
about
their fears, their emotions, and their desire for community. This
desire
is one of the strongest by-products of the horrible events of September
11th. It is also what distinguishes Here is New York from any and all
other books about the event.
