The "Falling Man" depicts a utilitarian approach to journalism publishing an absolutely disturbing image of a man falling to his death following the attacks on 9/11/2001 for the purpose of informing the public.
from another pinner--"why isn’t this the most famous photo from 9/11 instead of the falling man? isn’t 2 people holding hands after jumping more significant than 1 man? it makes me wonder what the story is behind this photo, were they friends or lovers? or just strangers who were too scared to jump alone? it shows that people need a helping hand even in their final moments."
