World Trade Towers

I took this photo of the World Trade Towers on assignment hanging out of a helicopter. Those were the days!

I enjoyed photographing the World Trade Towers between 1980 and 1990 when I lived in New York and worked as a photographer. I have scanned some of these images from film (in the scan above, as in many of these images, you can see the 35mm frame around the photo).

I’ve posted a set of my scanned World Trade images to Flickr, and you can see all of these World Trade Tower images on Flickr.

That is, if you want to cry. Everytime I think of the World Trade Towers it makes me sad about how our world has changed for the worse, but I truly think that those who do not remember the past are doomed to repeat it.

This photo is from Jersey City looking across the river:
