Ten years previous to the 9-11 incident, almost to the day, the powerful photograph titled “Towers of Power”, was taken of the Twin Towers, by Scott Andrew Tugel. This photograph has now become part of the Permanent Collection of the 9/11 Memorial and Museum in New York City. The image is both a haunting and inspiring photograph of a woman positioned between the Twin Towers with fists raised in defiance of the plane headed towards the Twin Towers. The historical significance at the time that this photograph was created, could not be known. The expression of the subject positioned between the towers, with plane overhead, foreshadows the tragedy that was to take place. This photograph is especially profound at this anniversary of the 9-11 tragedy.
The image “Towers of Power” produces a timeless, prophetic perspective. The photo brings to light the invisible chord between the past, present and future. This is a significant time to remember those we lost, recognize all who have endured, and to inspire strength to overcome adversity. “Towers of Power” provides a rich image of resilience and hope.
