Wim Wenders is perhaps best known for his work as a film director but he has also produced a major body of photographic work. This powerful, large-scale photograph was taken in the immediate aftermath of the 11 September 2001 terrorist attacks on New York. Wenders photography often examines concepts of time and memory. This image, despite its beauty, captures a moment of horror and despair that has continued to haunt people for many years.
