Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Lamentations 9/11, photographer David Finn (Children of the World) documents the dozens of New York City telephone polls, subway stations, fences and building walls where people hung posters for missing loved ones after September 11. Pleas for information, messages to family members, children's drawings and commemorative signs make up the moving montages. Finn also includes images of the World Trade Center both before and after the disaster. The photographs are complemented by a kind of prose poem by novelist E.L. Doctorow's (Ragtime), a paean to the city's dead ("We would appear on the perimeters of one another's consciousness, in one another's sightlines, on any given day, passing in the street, riding the subway, shopping for our families... we were one another's context"). There is an introduction by U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

    Sort of Like Being There

    I was attracted to the book (on display shelf at the public library) because I hoped it would take me back to the scene. I went (from my home in Columbus, Ohio) to ground zero Thanksgiving weekend of 2001, just a few weeks after 9/11. Saddest time of my life. By the time we got there, NY had put up fences which made it difficult to see the scenes of devastation. This book took me beyond the fences, allowing me to see a fuller picture of the devastation. Why do I rate it only a three? It was more informational than inspiring. It didn't really take me back to the scene. However, for those who haven't been there, it will give you some idea of what it was like. What's missing are the acrid smell, the sounds, and the heavy, depressing feeling. I appreciate the efforts of the author and photographer and would like to see more of the photos.
