The definitive collection of WTC photographs
I've seen a number of the many books available on the WTC. They all include any number of beautiful images to honor this place. I must say that none other compare with this remarkable collection by Jay Maisel. Mr. Maisel is renowned for his beautiful work from all over the world. He is also a lifetime New Yorker who compulsively photographed the World Trade Centers for decades. The single vision demonstrated here provides a cohesion to the book that many others seem to lack. You follow the towers from construction to final destruction in all kinds of weather, breathtaking light, and dramatic fashion. Jay Maisel has served as inspiration for an entire generation of photographers. His sense of color is unrivaled. Often imitated, here is the real deal. This book was unfortunately printed in limited numbers and may be hard to find, but well worth the effort if you can get your hands on one.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

An Amazing Book
I was instantly drawn to the front cover, it displays an amazing picture of the two Towers. The pictures are breaktaking, The photographer, Jay Maisel, has been a long time resident of New York, and an avid admirer of the Towers. The pictures photographed at all different times of the year, at different hours, and at amazing positions, provide a wonderfully put together testament of these wonderful buildings. Tribute not only provides a testament to these building, but also a testament to all those involved in Sept.11.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
