Recently a 9/11 photo featuring the 2 lights that shine in the sky on ground zero on every 9/11 anniversary went viral on twitter. However, the credits to the picture where incorrectly given. The actual photographer John De Guzman noticed this and announced on Twitter that these were his pictures. You will see this amazing picture, which was actually taken in 2010 below (first two images). The rest of the images are from this year. If you would like to view more of John Deguzman’s photos, got to his  Flickr page and you can also purchase his photos from SmugMug.

Most Powerful 9/11 Photos (Part 1)

Life recently published some of the most powerful photos of 9/11. It has been 10 years since this tragic event and more photos have surfaced ever since. Due to New York being the center of this tragedy and huge population, some great photographers happened to be there and took these pictures.

9/11 photos
The South Tower of the World Trade Center explodes in flames after being hit by the hijacked airliner now universally known as “the second plane,” United Airlines Flight 175, September 11, 2001. This photo — with its black smoke; the shocking, brilliant, colossal flames; the cloudless sky; the beautiful Brooklyn Bridge flying the American flag — captures so much of the story of the day that, if one were to create a composite picture to illustrate the idea of “9/11,” the result might look very much like this astonishing shot.

911-5
a man falls (or leaps, as was evidently the case with many victims) to his death from the World Trade Center. On the morning of September 11 photographer Richard Drew, in the midst of another assignment, got the call to drop everything and head to the World Trade Center. As soon as he arrived downtown he began shooting; later in the day, as as he processed what he had shot, he was especially struck by this photo — and with reason. One of the most recognizable pictures made on 9/11.

President George W. Bush was informed by his chief of staff Andrew Card of the attacks on the World Trade Center during a school reading event in Sarasota, Florida. At the time the president got slack for acting so calmly and not reacting right away and instead continuing to read for few more minutes. Later he explained that he didn’t want the students to freak out.

Here are the Part 3 and last part of the Most Powerful 9/11 photos as published by Life. You can see part 1 and part 2 as well.

9/11 Firefighters raising flag
This image is probably one of the most famous 9/11 photos. It was made by Bergen Record photographer Thomas E. Franklin on the day of the attacks, eerily calls to mind one of American history’s most iconic pictures: Joe Rosenthal’s 1945 photograph of five Marines and a Navy corpsman raising the Stars and Stripes at Iwo Jima.

Jennifer S. Altman, a freelance photographer, took this picture of the towers ablaze, and far, far below them, one woman wearing an expression of pure horror. Five years later, Altman was invited to the home of the woman in red, Rose Parascandola, who had been working at an online-trading company on the 51st floor of WTC 1 on September 11. “She said that I really captured how she felt. She had seen it in the paper, and that it meant a lot to her.” For Altman, it was a meaningful photo, as well. “It was a turning point in my career. All my skills came together at once in a professional way. But it also made me very aware of my life; I don’t take things for granted.”
