9/11: The Photographers' Stories

© John Botte

Two years ago, we published a piece that all of us remain extremely proud of. Marking the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, Joel Johnson and Matt Buchanan sat down with the photographers—pros and amateurs alike—who risked their lives to bring back the indelible images of that day. Woven together by Scott Alexander, their stories and images merge into a singular portrait of that powerful day—a difficult, enduring reminder of the photojournalist's role in crisis.

You can read the oral history in four parts beginning here. If you have an iPad, you can download an expanded edition with additional images and audio clips from iTunes. In exchange we encourage a donation to one of several charities serving the first responders and victims of September 11.
