This image of the aftermath of the Twin Towers attack was captured by Mario Tama. He had been there when the South Tower collapsed and remembered the experience in an interview with The Dallas News. As he put it, “At that moment I was transformed from being an observer, a photographer, a witness, into just another New Yorker running for his life.”

Professional photographer Spencer Platt was walking across the Brooklyn Bridge when he captured this horrifying shot at the moment United Airlines Flight 175 crashed into the South Tower. Platt told American Photo, “I didn’t hear the second plane, and I certainly didn’t see it. I had put my camera up to take some more frames, and then it just hit.”
