In the line of fireSeptember 11, 2011
An interesting article here from The Guardian about a picture by Magnum photographer Thomas Hoepker of 9/11 which was not published at the time, not because it was horrific, but because it might have been taken to show people relaxing as the Twin Towers burned. I’ve written before about the ambiguity of photography. Last month my photographs of young people on mountain bikes watching a fire in Salford, were interpreted as showing rioting. The fact is that photographers are always attracted to contrasts and juxtapositions.
