extremely good photographs non graphic, but so excellant in showing many facets of this disaster.

These are far and away the best pictures I've seen. Thanks for the post.

Thanks for the post, Jack. Great photos, although the one with the church cross in the foreground and the "flag through the window" shot are a bit over-the-top for my taste.

I wish I knew what equipment and film he used there....

Check out the other photo-essays at time.com too, I have had a good look at them today.

It's scary, some of them are so good you can't believe it is real, it just looks so much like a movie set.

Does anybody else find it in bad taste that Time is running a banner ad on its site for the Time Life commemorative-edition Pearl Harbor book right now? I can't link to it because it's apparently a run-of-site ad that only pops up occasionally, but I saw it on one of the WTC photo gallery pages and it left a bad taste in my mouth.

Writing from Italy and I have so far only seen TV pictures. These are the best photographs I have seen. Thay manage to capture a hell of a lot in terms of what happened

Stunning photos. These pictures convey so much more to me than large scale TV pics of the WTC being destroyed. They are human, clear and grounded.

However, I really don't like the clumsy juxtapostion of the cross. Tuesday's attack was not (just) on Christianity, and its dangerously simplistic to encourage such a viewpoint.

there's also a nice series here at msnbc.com with soundbites. (click on slide show, on the right hand side)

The photos should speak for themselves. The big repeating caption 'SHATTERED' and the reminder that the photographer is 'award-winning' and that the photos are 'remarkable' is tastless. It reminds me of some bad hyperstylized college photo essay that says more about the photographer than the subject. I don't mean to sound bitter, but to me the juxptaposed cross photo looked remarkably like a cheap reach at irony in some coffee table book.
