Memory Remains, 9/11 Artifacts at Hangar 17.  Photographer Francesc Torres and contributing Editors include Yale historian David Blight and the National September 11 Museum curator Jan Ramirez. Published by National Geographic. Nearly two million tons of debris was removed from ground zero in the wake of 9/11.  Less than one percent was brought to a hangar at New York’s JFK International Airport.  This is all that remained and Hangar 17 has become part of the historic record of 9/11 and its aftermath.  Artists, Photographer, Frances Torres, has produced nothing short of a remarkable human memory and meaning through his photographs. Scenes that are visually compelling and emotionally chilling.  These profound images will hold a significant place in the history of America.   The photographs are poignant, the essays of the relics of ground brought to Hangar 27, and the tremendous efforts that went into their preservation. Their value as objects as the senior editor of Newsweek has written:    “ …. the relics of ground zero was bought to Hangar 17, and tremendous efforts that went into preserving and analyzing them. On their value as objects, Beautiful they are not, brutally functional artifacts of heavy industry, battered and fire-scarred, rescued from the junkyard to which they would otherwise have been consigned.  They are something more than beautiful:  They are sacred.”  Photographer Torres a native of lower Manhattan imparts his own memories of that day as well as his intense feelings in the presence of the mangled remains years later.  Both visually compelling and emotionally shocking.   Now, in Memory Remains these profound images will hold a significant place in the story of America. Hardbound.   Full Color Photographs.  Pages 192.  Book measures approximately11 inches wide X 9 ½ inches high.
