In commemoration of the 15th anniversary of September 11, 2001, World Trade Center Four Decades: Photographs by Camilo José Vergara documents the ever-evolving landscape of lower Manhattan and the powerful role the World Trade Center has played in New York City’s identity. In this unique special installation of 30 time lapse photographs, the World Trade Center is examined from every point of the compass, chronicling its changes over time―from the early days of the Twin Towers’ construction in the 1970s, to their dominance of the skyline in the 1980s and 1990s, to the emptiness of the city’s horizon in the aftermath of the tragic events of September 11, 2001, to the slow rebuilding process that followed. Employing a method he has developed of photographing the same site over a period of time, Vergara has captured the transformation of an urban space, giving visitors the opportunity to reflect on their own memories of the World Trade Center.
