Requiem: Images of Ground Zero is regarded as the most important document ever created to accurately portray the "Recovery Period" at Ground Zero. Official Ground Zero Photographer Gary Marlon Suson's stunning coffee table hard-cover book is released here in a new, commemorative edition. Containing hundreds of "Rare Photos" (Susan Sachs, The New York Times), the book takes readers on a 9-month journey through the most intimate, private moments at the former World Trade Center site. Suson was dubbed the "Matthew Brady of the World Trade Center" by Josh Gibson of Fox News Channel, referring to the photographer who singlehandedly documented the Civil War. For his exhaustive photographic work at Ground Zero, Gary Suson was appointed an FDNY Honorary Battalion Chief in 2004 by the New York Fire Commissioner.

The 200 page book, published and designed originally by Barnes & Noble Books, is the only existing photographic record of the monumental Recovery effort in the weeks and months after the September 11, 2001 attacks. The publication features 280 color & sepia-toned photographs from the World Trade Center site, where Suson was the only professional photographer granted unfettered 24/7 access to every single area at Ground Zero in the months following the attacks. Able to penetrate the most secure areas at Ground Zero, including the dangerous PATH Subway Station deep below Ground Zero and the charred Secret Service parking garages, Suson brings to the reader a world never-before-seen. Shooting Officially on behalf of the Uniformed Firefighter's Association (FDNY), Suson's images have raised tens of thousands of dollars for the FDNY Foundation for the Children of Fallen Firefighters as well as other charities.

This commemorative edition, which retails for $49.00, features a new cover with endorsements on the back cover from numerous 9/11 & FDNY family members who lost loved ones in the WTC attacks. "Requiem" is forwarded by highly regarded FDNY Chief of Counter-Terrorism Joseph W. Pfeifer. Requiem: Images of Ground Zero is a testament to the heroism and sensitivity displayed by FDNY, PAPD and NYPD during the Recovery effort at Ground Zero. The book has also received written praise from former U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno, The FBI, The Secret Service, actress Susan Sarandon, World Trade Center Re-Design architect Daniel Libeskind, screenwriter Nicholas Pileggi (Goodfellas, Casino), Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley, famed attorney Gerry Spence and numerous other dignitaries. It is a must-have for any historical book collection.
