Remembering the Septermber 11 terrorist attacks, photographer James Nachtwey revisits his rolls of film and shares unpublished photographs he snapped during that fateful day.
James Nachtwey is a photojournalist and a war photographer. He has photographed armed conflicts, war, social and socio-political issues, and famine. He has documented these issues from all over the world. From the United States and Latin America, to Eastern Europe, South Africa, the Middle East, Russia, and the former Soviet Union.
He recalls the events that took place on that day, September 11, ten years ago. He braved into the scene, just as everyone else was running away from it, he rushed towards it to get a good spot for taking pictures only realizing later on that he was also putting his life in danger. He managed to get out of peril and spent the rest of the day doing his job, photographing and documenting the scene.
That time, he had not yet switched to digital. He had 28 rolls of film with him but only used 27 of them. one roll was given to a fellow photographer. The photos he took were published at Time.com and recently, he has revisited his 27 contact sheets from ten years ago and shares to us, never before seen images that are stunning and horrid.
