THE TOWERS OF THE WTC: 51 YEARS OF PHOTOGRAPHS BY CAMILO JOSÉ VERGARA

September 17, 2021 @ 8:00 am - March 6, 2022 @ 5:00 pm UTC+0

Few urban districts in modern history have been more discussed than Lower Manhattan, and the World Trade Center (WTC) has held a prominent place in accounts of the area since it was completed in 1973. Radio Row, a viable neighborhood, had to make way for the Twin Towers, which were widely criticized on both aesthetic and political grounds; many regarded them as soulless behemoths and arrogant symbols of American imperialism. But their destruction brought a kind of horror not previously seen in the United States, and triggered years of wars and political instability in distant countries.
