EVERY PICTURE TELLS A STORY COLLECTION
Tribute in Light by Mark D Phillips
September 11, 2020
On September 11, 2001, during the attack on the World Trade Center, I took a photograph that has become known as Satan in the Smoke. The photograph has haunted me ever since the first moment I saw it.
That image became my main memory of the day.
As a witness to the devastation that occurred not only to my city but to thousands of families, each 911 I sit and listen to every name read during the memorial service at the national 911 Memorial.
On the 19th anniversary, I couldn’t find any of the networks covering the ceremony. Finally, I found a live stream from the museum and listened to every name once more. It lasted till almost noon. But I felt I had to do more.
I said to my wife, “I’ve got to go to New York and see the Tribute in Light.”
The image of the Tribute in Light from September 11, 2020, in the age of COVID-19 presented a feeling completely opposite of the one I captured on September 11, 2001. It gave me hope for the future, and closure of the past.
