Golden Section Publishers is pleased to announce the forthcoming release of our fourth title, a monograph by photographer Brian Rose entitled WTC.
This monograph follows the sold out success of Brian’s previous two monographs published by Golden Section Publishers – Time And Space On The Lower East in 2011 and Metamorphosis: Meatpacking District in 2016
WTC is the third in a trilogy of New York books. It is the story of the World Trade Center, the presence and absence of the Twin Towers, and the rebuilding of the city.
Brian began photographing the Trade Center soon after arriving in New York in 1977, and extensively documented lower Manhattan in the early 1980s. He made a series of images in the week following 9/11 and began collecting vernacular images of the Twin Towers, on murals, posters, and memorials.
WTC is more than a documentation; it is also a tribute to New Yorkers and all who carry a piece of this great city with them. It is a book that commemorates rather than exploits, a book that preserves memories, both painful and hopeful, and celebrates, however cautiously, the resilience of this city in the face of adversity.
