Fifteen years ago, the lives of nearly 3,000 people came to a tragically premature end. Since then, the rubble has been cleared, the perpetrators have been caught and a new building has been erected, but for the many still mourning the loss of their loved ones, nothing built or brought to justice can replace that hollow, aching feeling that acts as their shadow each and every day.

When the towers collapsed on that fateful morning in September, so too did their worlds. This photography from 9/11–no matter how hard it may be to view–encapsulates that sinking feeling of irrevocable loss:
