STEPPING THROUGH THE ASHES

Eugene Richards, Author, Janine Altongy, Author, Eugene Richards, Photographer . Aperture $40 (192p) ISBN 978-1-931788-01-4

A lone fireman stands partway up a mountain of gnarled metal and debris, while nearby smoke wafts up from underneath the pile—it could be the gateway to hell. Award-winning photographer Richards (Americans We, etc.) presents a powerful and evocative collection of images of the aftermath of the World Trade Center collapse: black-and-white photos allow him to use light and shadow to great effect, complemented by dramatic interviews that writer and documentary producer Altongy conducted with survivors and relatives of victims.
