BERLIN, Sept. 6, 2011 /CNW/ - http://www.my-wtc.com is a photo blog created in 2009 and curated by Stefka Ammon and Robert
Ziegler. It is a collection of pictures of people photographed in front
of, in, on, behind or beside the World Trade Center. These photographs
were taken between the start of construction in 1966 and September 10,
2001. Images of the destruction of the towers on 9/11 are explicitly
not a part of this blog.
The authors of the photographs can also post their thoughts and memories
along with their pictures. The result is a kaleidoscope of texts and
images, providing a unique perspective on this distinctive, emotionally
Anyone who has an appropriate photo is invited to upload it to http://www.my-wtc.com/submit or e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org along with a brief commentary. Submit your image!
The World Trade Center's life span coincided with the peak of private
analog photography. The millions of photos taken at the WTC have, for
the most part, never been digitized. They're stuck in albums, buried in
boxes, tucked away in cellars and storage rooms.
There are currently 245 pictures and commentaries on http://www.my-wtc.com, from all over the world: the U.S., China, Germany, the Philippines,
Japan, Indonesia, India, Canada, France, Argentina, Turkey, Uruguay,
Cuba, the Netherlands, England, Poland, Russia, Israel, Italy, Spain,
Portugal, Finland, Sweden, Austria, Switzerland and many more. . . .
