Some dates are defining dates, and everyone remembers where they were. One such date is 9/11. If I asked you where you were on that day, you’d probably remember. One of the photographs most associated with that day is The Falling Man. Interestingly, despite the strength of the photo, it almost disappeared from the news shortly after it was published. Here is some context about the photo:
The Falling Man is a photograph taken by Associated Press photographer Richard Drew. It shows a man falling from the North Tower of the World Trade Center at 9:41:15 am during the September 11 attacks in New York City. The subject of the image, whose identity remains uncertain, was one of the people trapped on the upper floors of the skyscraper who either fell searching for safety or jumped to escape the fire and smoke.
