Click to preview Gone... but not forgotten photo book

A photographic retrospective of a national icon, from the unique perspective of award winning photo-journalist Sid Birns.

The Twin Towers were a personal and favorite subject of photographer Sid Birns, who framed them in as many different ways as he could, capturing them on film like the paparazzi catch the famous. His photos were archived and most likely would have stayed that way, until September 11, 2001, when one man's private pursuit suddenly became an unintended memorial.

anyone who's purchased a book needs to check it - we've found one not bound properly so the pages are falling out, if you have one like this please let us know - via email or on the facebook page so we can arrange for you to receive a reprint.

this from Jim in the UK:
Hi Sid... those pictures are amazing. You must have been more devastated than most when they were destroyed - thank goodness for photography and your genius in capturing their beauty. Sadly I never got to see them in real life so these pictures will go some way in showing me their story. You must be justly proud to have produced ... such a compelling and awe-inspiring anthology. I liked the picture of you in fatigues! Thanks again for letting me view the book.

Magnificent compilation of photographs, Sid. You have captured the heart of the World Trade Center story, from beginning to end. Fantastic job.
