David Friend has worked for Vanity Fair for nearly twenty years, and before that he was in charge of photography for iconic Life magazine, but he also works on books. A new one brings together commentary and images on that constant existential question; what is the meaning of life. Hundreds of responses from people, and hundreds more photographs, are collected in a book that looks at the 9/11 event; Watching the World Change: The Stories Behind the Images of 9/11.
- David Friend has decades of experience with photography and collecting images and comments with meaning.
- A book he organized focuses on 9/11 through interviews and images of survivors of the event.
- The Naughty Nineties is a book that explores the question of existence at a very ground floor level.
“In Watching the World Change: The Stories Behind the Images of 9/11, published five years after the destruction of the Twin Towers, Friend addressed that question from a more concentrated perspective.”
