NEW YORK NEW YORK – Well . . . here we are another year past 9/11. I was sitting at my desk in midtown in a corner office with a southwest view that included the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building and the World Trade Center towers. I turned and saw: smoke pouring out of one of the towers, the second plane hit, and both towers collapse. Our son, Alexander, was working downtown and was one of the people how sought refuge in a building lobby as the streets were engulfed in asbestos-laced dust. It was hours before we made contact with him.
Traffic is a total snarl today. I stayed in midtown near my office photographing a new installation at Lever House with my Leica Monochrom and Luxxochron. Actually, this isn’t a completed installation, just the construction of some new walls to display a new installation, but who would know.
On this day one year ago: Bendel.
