Bloodplanes break the silence of clouds–strangely
Lonesome–as we, the living, pierce ourselves with the
Hooks of memory, digging without rest, digging night
& day, throwing ourselves into the holes of grief in
Search of ourselves changed forever–looking up,
Seeing nothing, in disbelief looking up again.

  1. [...] Volviendo a McCurry, el día del atentado de las Torres Gemelas de Nueva York, se levantó a las 6 de la mañana como suele ser habitual sufriendo jet lag tras un largo viaje de unos días antes. Sobre el caos que vino después lo cuenta en su propia web. [...]

  3. I see tragic and sadness in Steve McCurry’s pictures around 9/11. Maybe we should continue this selection about grief and sorrow with images from Iraq and Afghanistan to understand the vicious circle mankind has trapped in.

  5. This is a wonderful post .. very memorable!

  6. That Day was a terrible example of Man’s inhumanity to Man. Yet, in spite of the terrible events, there were so many examples of profound humanity, sacrifice and bravery. These images provoke so many emotions. Thank you.

  19. I couldn’t have said it better than anyone else here. On 9-11, we grieved with friends and strangers. Ten years later, I’ll do so again.

    I will never forget.

    Good work Steve !!! Great pictures, but so very sad. Was it a coincidence that you we’re at the right place at the right time?

    Unes grans fotografies…..

  25. Great photos Steve, my compliments. You captured these moments in a so particular and involving way….these photos witness what happened THAT day….your photos speak more than words. I’ m near to all American. Big hug. Cristina (from Italy)

  26. So much better than any news channel; simple facts and beautiful-yet-horrible images. Thank you, Steve.

    very dangeres

  28. Steve, thank you for posting these powerful images. I am not an American but my heart is with the American people now. It is the most horrifying experience when a tragedy of this scale happens in your town, where you least expect it. Then the distant issues of hatred, religious bigotry and terrorism become a first-hand reality, opening your eyes and your heart to the suffering and injustice that prevail our troubled times.

    Money and politics make people divide.:(

  30. May we remember that each and every human being wants peace in their lives. We must access our own peace to manifest it outside of ourselves. Let’s begin today.

  31. The image of the sidelit escalator with solitary figure is serene yet haunting.

  32. It does not matter after how many years i am checking these pics… the pain is still the same. Tragic and Sad … we see or hear blasts almost every day, but never expected it to impact these huge number of public.

    Historic photographs. May peace prevail on Earth and every where.
