(Various) 1999 The Quake: A Frame-byFrame Record of Taiwan's Septepmber 21, 1999 Earthquake. Prepartory Committee for the PhotoBook Sales to Benefit People Affected by the Septepmber 21, 1999 Earthquake, Taipai, 1999. 240 pp. Small, oblong folio. Texts by various authors.

A scarce volume that provides a riveting account of the natural disaster that, for the Taiwanese, 9/21/1999 has an emotional resonance perhaps greater than 9/11 for Americans.
"Over 100 photographers contributed some 2500 photographs to the project (selected down to 400), which also had the practical aim of raising money from its sales for the relief of earthquake victims...[it]presents a story of tragedy and heroism, showing graphic images of the devastation and the selfless work of the rescue teams...Events like the Taiwanese earthquake of 9/21, or the World Trade Center atrocity of 9/11, also tend to bring out the best in photographers, however much they might hope their talents could be exercised in more peaceful and tranquil circumstances."--Parr & Badger
