6 Years On: These 9-11 NYC Images Still Get me

Tuesday, September 11th, 2007

I had to journey to NYC in November of 2001 to attend the unveiling of my grandmother out on Long Island. I had debated with family if I should make the trip to NYC. In the end I was determined to make the long flight to be with my family in thier time of need. Little did I know that this decision would alter the course of my life.

As I walked the street camera in hand, snaping the city that surrounded me. Everywhere I went I bore witness the the changes in my culture. It was the first time as an artist, I just melded with the subject, because there was no seperation between me, and subject. They were one and the same.

On this 6 year anniversary I remember those times. The sadness in our hearts.

I look forward to brighter days.

Marjorie Jeung reviews The Wall Series, a poetic and thought provoking collection of images of decay by photographer Jacob Schere.

Following on from New York Inflections in issue 4 of dontmagazine.com, we go to Tokyo where Jacob Schere takes us on a journey through time. He writes, ‘Here in sleek and ultra modern Tokyo lay images left to peel slowly off the wall. These images are of recent ancient history. Flake by flake they peel from their cement base – like an archaeologist dusting off the centuries to discover a city in ruin, I have discovered these paintings on a wall, left to grunt against the elements.’ Schere is a New Yorker living in Tokyo. He is from a city that’s built for speed but even he is taken aback by the pace of change in his adoptive home. These images of an arrested civilisation located in a kaleidoscope of tenses echo our condition. Their elegant erosion, nobility in neglect and haunting sense of devastation recall our wastefulness and our own inevitable decrepitude. A friend writes, ?????Yes, I love them! Their colours as well as their fragility and how in every flake and peel a new history is added, the pollution where seagulls cannot dive and the sublime intimate connection of two people hidden in the mist-’
