Some rare photos taken on September 11 that allow us to relive those moments from a different point of view

November 11, 2017 • By Shirley Marie Bradby

The writer David Friend has collected in a book some photos taken on that tragic day September 11, which we all have well-stamped in our minds.

His photographs mostly depict the moments immediately after the explosions, when little was known about what would later be recognized as a terrorist attack.

What makes these photos most notable are the expressions that we see on the faces of the people, perhaps none of them could imagine the magnitude of the tragic event.

All the photos have been published in the book "Watching the World Change: The Stories Behind the Images of 9/11", available at Amazon.

1. A crowd of people looks at the towers from Park Row and Beekman Street.
