Nights of 9/11

Photographs by Hale Gurland

 

Brings me back to that month after that. I worked at the site; I can smell it.

Seeings these photos, I feel raw, feel the heat of the smoke burning my eyes. I was teaching in Italy in a small town in Anversa degli Abruzzi. It was 3 in the afternoon. Our students only wanted to call N.Y. The lines were busy. We had no English TV. REI would come on and the only thing in English was "what the fuck.." and then the overnarrative in Italian. Everyone in the village came to see us. Tears and hugs. I returned to NYC at the end of September. I could hardly believe what I saw. 

-Sheilah Rechbeh

Amazing- Thank you for having the foresight to record the experience.

-Phil Heffernan

Watched on TV- felt, what else is new? Welcome to the world.

-Sara Bleinstein

Fabuloso!

-Lori Mendel

I cannot imagine why people would do something like destroy one of the most important buildings.

Very cool and interesting.

-E. Freed

I think this work is brilliant, difficult and horrid material but powerful light. 

-JK. Boccio

Great Work. The rawness reflected in the work mirrors the event.

Thank you.

-Alisa Algan

These photographs make us aware of the impact the war in Iraq had on the citizens of Iraq and their lives. 

The photographs convey so many stories of war and refugees. I appreciated the fact that the exhibit did not seek to include too many pictures, which often overwhelms one's ability to take in the meaning. Thank you very much for your work, the tears and the heartfelt and awful telling of this war. 

-Denise Kronstadt

So informative- absolutely lovely to share such an interesting dialogue. Many thanks.

-C. Vaughn

A great experience! Thank you! 

-Pat Lamanna
