MY_WTC #336 | Seymour 1998 | My son and I

Published 02/16/2012

scanned from polaroid, shot on the Staten island Ferry by Louis Mendes in 1998.

My son and I. A few months before [September 2001], in early June, my son had his 6th birthday lunch at Windows On the World. A blanket of clouds covering lower Manhattan, and only the top of the towers stood above the moving clouds. It felt like we were in a very silent, sophisticated plane, moving north at a surreal pace.
