“It’s not like other photographs of violent situations’. This is the viewpoint of author of The Falling Man, Richard Drew. Many pictures were taken on that horrific day 17 months ago, but there’s one in particular that has been hidden from the mainstream media. Dubbed “The Falling Man”, the photo is ‘every American can identify with’.
‘There is no blood, no violence but people have a very strong reaction because they can identify with it’. The image of the falling man was removed from all press and media as it is said to be an unbearable image, not taking into account the respect of the victims.
