9/11′s spectacular visual impact often gives rise to the belief that we have all ‘seen’ the terrorist attacks, in particular the iconic imagery surrounding the WTC Towers. But as will be demonstrated, photographs (screen grabs, amateur and professional, before, during and after) of 9/11 are intensely problematic in relation to issues of trauma, portent, aesthetics, politics and theories concerned with looking and the Real.
