SPECIAL: TWIN TOWERS 12TH YR ANNIV. THE STORY BEHIND THE FALLEN MAN ON 9/11


Check out this interesting article done by “Esquire” about the story behind the 9/11 falling man photo. Here is a little snippet below:

“In the picture, he departs from this earth like an arrow. Although he has not chosen his fate, he appears to have, in his last instants of life, embraced it. If he were not falling, he might very well be flying. He appears relaxed, hurtling through the air. He appears comfortable in the grip of unimaginable motion. He does not appear intimidated by gravity’s divine suction or by what awaits him. His arms are by his side, only slightly outriggered. His left leg is bent at the knee, almost casually. His white shirt, or jacket, or frock, is billowing free of his black pants. His black high-tops are still on his feet.”
