The Emotional Terror Of 9/11 Summed Up In One Picture
Richard Drew, Associated Press member, took this photograph known as The Falling Man. This photograph is emotional for many, as it shows just a part of the horrors that occurred at the World Trade Center during the 9/11 attacks.
The identity of the man in the photo is unknown, as is the reason he fell from the building. Whether he fell or jumped, the world will never know. An estimated 200 people died from falling or jumping from the building, some experts say. Though it looks like the man is jumping straight down, a series of photographs taken throughout the fall show him tumbling through the air.
Fighting War With Flowers
Marc Riboud, award-winning photographer, captured this image titled La Jeune Fille a la Fleur, which showcases a young woman, Jane Rose Kasmir, placing a flower in the bayonet of a Pentagon guard on October 21st, 1967. This photo became one of the symbols of the Flower Power movement.
The Flower Power movement was a movement of non-violence. Those who played a part in the protests of 1967 were against the Vietnam War and wanted to use peace to make their ideas clear. They often gave flowers to the officers who surrounded their protests. Some took them, while others did not.
