Ken Bruggeman provides an emotionally charged and stark feature of the 9/11 Memorial. We are including it on our blog because 1) the photography is stunning, 2) the subject affects us all — families, kids, every single person. I think black and white is the perfect choice for the subject:
“On just one day, a little over 10 years ago, a single event changed the world as we know it. I am of course talking of not only a day in American history, but a day that the world will remember forever. The terrorist attacks on America have brought devastating change to our country as a whole and to every individual life in it. But another thing that it has brought, is beauty in the reflection of the unity created from that very same event. That day, and all the years that have followed have created a closer bond, and broke boundaries and divisions among us as a people. In a single moment it supremely humbled us, if only for a moment. As is the nature of being human, we quickly let our pride separate us and create difference, but when we think back to that event, and this wonderful and free country, that unity emanates. I had the opportunity to visit the 9-11 Memorial at the site of the World Trade Center in New York City last year. It is a stunning Memorial and creates a sacred sense of strength and power in the void that has been left. Remember when you look at these photos, the lives of those lost, the heroic selfless people who worked and sacrificed their lives in the service of people they didn’t even know, and remember that humbling feeling that this Memorial carries with the haunting memory of that clear September morning.”
