For those of us not in New York, Washington, D.C., or Shanksville, Pa., our memories of Sept. 11 are shaped largely by the photos of that day and its aftermath. Some of the most arresting images were collected by Life magazine, the visual witness to much of the world's most important events of the 20th century. Many others were taken and distributed by the photo agencies Magnum and VII, both of which had members in New York that day.

Life has collected 911 photos of moments great and small that are displayed on its website.

This is a slide show gallery of images curated by LIFE from the September 11 attacks.

Magnum Photos, the legendary cooperative formed by the likes of Robert Capa and Henri Cartier-Bresson, was holding its monthly meeting in New York when the planes hit the World Trade Center towers. Eleven of its members immediately took to the streets, capturing the surreal devastation as it unfolded, through the days and weeks that followed. A few of these pictures are collected here; many others can be found at Slate.com.

This is a slideshow gallery of photos taken by Magnum photographers on September 11, 2001.

The photo agency VII was formed on Sept. 9, 2001, just two days before the attacks. Soon after, founding members Ron Haviv, Antonin Kratochvil and Christopher Morris arrived in New York to document the aftermath. See more of their photos from the aftermath on the VII website.

Back from Perpignan and another great visit to Visa Pour l’Image… obviously a lot of  fun was had and it did hurt a bit looking at my bank balance this morning …but it was also a productive week or so in terms of showing work and meeting editors….and educational having sat through several photographers’ talks…Chris Morris and Gary Knight to mention just a couple…But if there are two words that really sum up Visa Pour l’Image 2011 for me, they are exhaustion and inspiration…Those were at least the two things on top of my mind landing back in London Monday evening… the late nights, early rises, and eventful days certainly took their toll…but you also get very inspired attending the evening screenings at Campo Santo or La Republique, looking at the exhibitions at places like Couvent de Minimes, showing and getting feedback for your work at Palais de Congress, or just talking shop with fellow photographers and other industry types over dinners in some of the many very fine restaurants or over drink at the famous La Poste…or just plain fooling around

photo: Barbara Davidson

My festival highlights in terms of looking at work were exhibition of Barbara Davidson’s Pulitzer winning work Caught in the Crossfire about innocent victims of LA gang warfare…and seeing Canon AFJ 2011 recipient Ilvy Njiokiktjien present a very well put-together multimedia version of her award winning series at the Canon stage…hope the video will be online soon somewhere, I’d love to be able to share it…

Before we look at the latest features, take a moment for this…

Fundraing for Anton Hammerl’s (1969-2011)  3 children…

Friends of Anton | related on BJP

It was unfortunate there was no tribute to Anton during Visa evening screenings as there were for Lucas Dolega, Chris Hondros, and Tim Hetherington,  apparently because Hammerl’s photos had not been released for free due to a misunderstanding (this according to BJP’s Olivier Laurent) …

‘This Is What I Do. This Is All That I Know.” – Joao Silva

Part of NYT Lens’ Visa coverage…Joao Silva had a show of his Afghanistan work…

Joao Silva (NYT Lens: August 2011)

My favourite frame of Silva’s exhibition made me think of  other  photos I’ve seen of the B52 trails in the Afghan skies…photos which kind of seem to sum up and symbolise for me the long term foreign influence in the country…Of course the US and its allies have been in Afghanistan for 10 years with tens of thousands of boots on the ground…but when you think longer term…How will the last ten years of fight against the Taliban be seen in 20 years… 30 years… or 50 years? With US and its allies planning to reduce their presence in the country, will this most most recent war in Afghanistan be seen just as ‘a 10 years-or-so long in-and-out bomber round’? What has really been achieved?

Below Silva’s frame side-by-side Anderson’s, Knight’s, and Boulat’s…

Last week was quiet over here with no updates. Reason being that I was actually busy on assignments. For a change. One day gig to Wiltshire on Monday, and then a little road trip around Wales from Wednesday until Sunday. Pretty tired coming home last night, but will definitely not complain.  I’d love to have more weeks like the one just passed.. It has been looking promising after moving to London… Hope it stays that way…I have some good news in the bag to announce in a week or so, which I’m thrilled about…Trying to keep my big mouth shut for now…so let’s move on to today’s updates…

TIME has also updated Dominic Nahr’s gallery I posted on Tuesday, with some new images..

Features and Essays – Dominic Nahr: The Clashes in Cairo (TIME: February 2011)

Features and Essays - Guy Martin: Clashes in Cairo (WSJ: February 2011)

It’s not surprising photographers are moving in small packs in conditions as in Cairo during this week and end up with similar photographs. It does however give an interesting opportunity to compare, how two photographers see and capture identical scenes….As pointed out by @melissalyttle, Dominic Nahr and Guy Martin for instance seem to have moved together as both of the two slideshows above include several photographs that have been taken as if the two men have been standing, in Lyttle’s words, “shoulder to shoulder”….See for yourself in the below examples…I find especially the first example striking… The two photographs are pretty much identical…only slight differences in contrast and saturation…About the photo of the man wiping blood off his head, I’m almost 100% certain we are looking at the same man, despite the fact his jacket does look different colour…this might be due to post processing… I’m pretty sure the wall is the same, and its colour is slightly different as well in the two photograps…
