Leica & Magnum: New York, Ten Years Later by Chris Anderson
In collaboration with Magnum Photos and The New Yorker, we present “Leica & Magnum: New York, Ten Years Later by Chris Anderson” a look at New York City ten years after the tragic events of September 11, 2001. The photos featured in this video were taken by Magnum Photographer Christopher Anderson. Christopher shares his thoughts on the project:
When The New Yorker magazine commissioned me to create a portfolio of images that could speak to how New York has changed in these ten years, I kept returning to the idea of windows. Windows represent the future. They represent passage and change. They shed light. Through windows we see opportunity and possibility. They sometimes reflect our own selves, and they sometimes act as barriers. In a more concrete way, they are how we New Yorkers physically experience our city. And of course, the idea of windows is directly linked to the two buildings that came down on September 11, 2001. These pictures are connected by the idea of windows. They are my attempt to pay tribute to the resilience of this city.
