Marking the 10th anniversary of 9/11, Phaidon Press with the support of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum announced today the publishing of a commemorative edition of the book “Aftermath: World Trade Center Archive” by Joel Meyerowitz.

The 349-page book, which will be published by Phaidon Press in June, is the only existing photographic record of the monumental recovery effort in the weeks and months after the September 11, 2001 attacks. The publication features 400 color photographs from the World Trade Center site, where Meyerowitz was the only professional photographer granted untethered access to ground zero in the months following the attacks. 

This commemorative edition features a new cover with an endorsement from 9/11 Memorial President Joe Daniels: “Aftermath is a testament to the heroism and compassion that were so much a part of the recovery effort at ground zero."
