It's one of the most unforgettable images from 9/11 - a photograph of a falling man, frozen in mid air, his body perfectly parallel with the twin towers of the World Trade Centre. The photo ran in newspapers across the world the following day, and should have remained one of the defining images of that terrible event. Instead, it was quickly airbrushed out of history. Why?
The Falling Man is the story of the "jumpers" of 9/11. It follows the trail of the photographer who nearly lost his life shooting the image, of the citizens who decried it by arguing that it was sensational and exploitative, of the editors who published it and then reluctantly banned it, and the journalist who finally uncovered the falling man's identity.
Alongside this is the larger story of the hundreds who jumped to their deaths from the towers on that dreadful day. The Falling Man provides a new examination of the events that unfolded inside the towers after the planes hit, prompting the question implicit in the photograph: would you have jumped?
