The photograph by Mark D Phillips shot moments after the second plane struck the World Trade Center captured the face of Satan – or did it?
Readers called their hometown newspapers by the hundreds after the picture appeared on front pages across the country. What was the face formed by the smoke exiting the South Tower?
"Satan In The Smoke: A Photojournalist’s 9/11 Story” is Phillips’ first person narrative of the media frenzy created by his image.
The 10th Anniversary of the first publication of "Satan in the Smoke" is today, September 12, 2011. It has been a long ten years of grief and searching for answers to the worst event in our lifetime. The moment the picture appeared, eamil messages poured into Mark's inbox. His book recounts the story of that turbulent time.
On 9/11/2011, Mark photographed the same view at the same moment. The new tower rises, but the hurt will never go away.
