You know, I just can't walk past a mirror without taking a self portrait.

WTC - Twin Towers

     April 1978, finally decided to shoot the Twin Towers. The rest of the Center had not been built yet, and it was a bit of a no man's land at the time. My interests usually took me to the 40's-70's on the West Side. At the time I was concentrating on what was old and disappearing in NYC (especially the waterfront), not with what was new. So it was a rarity that I found myself this far south in Manhattan. I always thought I would go back downtown and shoot more images, but I never did get around to it again.
     Every year, since 2001, late August I promise myself to go into my archives for these images. This year on the 10 anniversary of the destruction of the Towers, I decided to do just that. Here are some of the raw scans (chromes) from that shoot.

Just a reminder! All images are copyright Peter Politanoff, no reuse without permission.
