Resting on the southern shore of Brooklyn, between Coney Island and Manhattan Beach, is a place known to New York City dwellers as Brighton Beach. To some, though, it’s just “Little Odessa.”

Photographer Uliana Bazar grew up in Ukraine and had heard of “Little Odessa” during her childhood. The New York community is named after a Ukrainian city on the Black Sea — and today it’s a community of mostly Eastern Europeans, many of whom immigrated after 1970.

via The Guardian Thomas Hoepker’s photo of New Yorkers apparently relaxing as the twin towers smoulder says much about history and memory

↑ click for link ↑

Ten years on, this is becoming one of the iconic photographs of 9/11, yet its history is strange and tortuous. Hoepker, a senior figure in the renownedMagnum photographers’ co-operative, chose not to publish it in 2001 and to exclude it from a book of Magnum pictures of that horribly unequalled day. Only in 2006, on the fifth anniversary of the attacks, did it appear in a book, and then it caused instant controversy.

…Walter Sipser, identifying himself as the guy in shades at the right of the picture, said he and his girlfriend, apparently sunbathing on a wall, were in fact “in a profound state of shock and disbelief”. Hoepker, they both complained, had photographed them without permission in a way that misrepresented their feelings and behaviour.

Well, you can’t photograph a feeling. But another five years on since it surfaced in 2006, it seems pointless to argue about the morality of the people in the picture, or of the photographer, or his decision to withhold the picture from publication. It is now established as one of the defining photographs of that day – with the 10th anniversary of the World Trade Centre’s destruction approaching, the Observer Review republished it this August as the 9/11 photograph.

In 1958, the promotion department of The New York Times hired a young Swiss expat to take pictures that were collected in a slim hardcover book for prospective advertisers. The book, “New York Is,” extolled the virtues of the city and of the newspaper as the best way to tap its prosperous postwar consumers.

Photo by Anthonio Bolfo

There are all sorts of reasons why people become New York City police officers. Tradition. Family ties. The pension. Antonio Bolfo’s reasoning was simple.

“I was bored,” he said.

It was 2006, and Mr. Bolfo – a born-and-bred New Yorker with a degree from the Rhode Island School of Design – was an animator working on PlayStation games like Guitar Hero and Amplitude. Still, he was unfulfilled. The attack on the World Trade Center had gotten him thinking about law enforcement.

“It’s not a cop drama where it’s just black and white,” he said. “Cops grow, and this is where they learn their skills and have a trial by fire. They’re put in the most dangerous neighborhoods in New York City. They have to learn superfast.”

ODE TO THE G TRAIN

Your metal doors do not like diamonds glow,

And few admire your bright green neon face

You travel not where I most yearn to go,

And at a slow and steady snail-like pace.

Our schedules seem forever out of sync,

When I arrive of course you will have gone,

I patiently await you on the brink,

And wonder if your signal’s even on.

And you’ve been known to up and skip a station

So where you’ll go is anybody’s guess,

You travel on a route of your creation,

As if it satisfies you to digress.

And though I speak not praise, I must confide,

From Kings to Queens, you’re all I’ll ever ride.

“Jader was kind of a velcro dog; I couldn’t even go to the bathroom without him beside me. I’d look at him like, ‘Really?’ and he’d just kind of look back at me, like, ‘What?’ Every one - even cat people - gets one great dog in their life. Jader was mine.”
